'Lights for Learning' Project- Northern Kenya

Our team had the great privilege in visiting Chumvi Village School yesterday as part of our sponsoring the Nancy Ellen Crook’s Foundation “Light for Learning” Project in Northern Kenya. 

In an incredibly impoverished rural area with no electricity the Project focuses on the provision of solar powered lamps to children, to assist with their nightly homework. 

The children receiving the lights will be monitored throughout the school year to assess the impact the light source has on their ability to study and end of term test scores.

An incredible day and an honor to visit such a wonderful school in a beautiful area. A special moment to also meet Mr Howard Crooks, Nancy's husband, whose drive and energy is inspiring.

There is no more important contribution that we can make to the education and development of children.

The School has over 800 Students
