Based off the US population, children in all of these highlighted states wouldn't be in school if the stats were the same as they are in Kenya. 1 in 9 US students live in these states. Imagine if all of these students out of school!
It is pretty shocking and puts the problem into perspective, doesn't it?
We know that education changes lives and it motivates us to ensure that we do our part to make this statistic is a thing of the past.
New Hope Children works with local leadership to ensure educational success for each of our students. Joshua Lemuya is our school counselor and ensures each student not only has a successful pathway to graduation, but a plan for adulthood, to put all that they have learned to use.
And it is paying off. Our first two graduates are on their way to do AMAZING things for their communities. Evans is studying engineering to help bring greater infrastructure to his community. And Nico is studying how to farm in the deserted region of Lodwar, Kenya, so he can feed his community.
Education is changing lives, one student at a time. Thank you for joining with us to make this happen!
