Jambo! We are thrilled that you’re spending a few moments of your time with us. Please look through our photo gallery to see pictures of the team in action and to view some of the beautiful faces and places we were honored to get to know and visit on our inaugural trip to Kenya. And if you have any questions or would like more information, connect with us through our “contact us” section or follow us on IG, Twitter, or LinkedIn. We’d love for you to join us on our journey!
Msomi Academy for Girls is a non-profit registered with the state of Texas in the United States. We are in the process of applying for our 501(c)3 status, which will make us tax exempt and, better yet, give anyone who chooses to donate a tax deduction. Check back for updates as we move forward with this – we are looking to file our official paperwork by the beginning of August, so wish us luck.
Currently we are self-funding. All donations will go directly to the non-profit as we collect funds and supplies to purchase land in Kenya, contract labor and supplies, and begin building our school. We are determined to build an all girls primary school (grades 1 through 8) in a rural city in Kenya, so that we can provide high quality applied sciences focused education to girls who might not otherwise have access. Our plan is to recruit, hire, and train excellent educators from Kenya, and to ensure the program is self-sustaining within the country. It’s a big goal, but our team is committed, passionate, hard-working, and brilliant, so we feel good about our chances.
That’s it for the first post. Keep visiting us to learn more about our organization, our people, our progress, and our adventures. We look forward to sharing our journey with you and welcome your inquiries! Kwaheri, my friends.
