I started this fundraiser to help bring some added support and attention to our school building project in Kenya. Once completed it will function as a lower primary school by day and study library in the evening, for students living off-grid.
Over the past year and a half at econic earth, we’ve been running a student empowerment program, working in partnership with a local organization, on a program called “Watts On: Lighting Students Lives”.
We work with students from Nomadic and Pastoralist communities who have no access to electricity (light) at home or at school and empower them with solar light to support their educational needs. We currently have 20 schools signed up for our program and work closely with county education department, school teachers, and parents.
As part of this program we are building an eco-education facility and study center in our focus community.
We are seeking your help in this mission to empower the youth and allow for greater access to education, to equal rights and to give them a platform to have a chance to achieve their educational dreams.
Once our school building goal is met, any additional funds raised will roll over into our solar light distribution program that will resume next year (January 2021).
We have begun initial construction on the school through funds from econic earth, and your support will be greatly appreciated so we can keep up our momentum and complete the building by February next year.
Thank you again!!
