Textbook Project 2017

Textbook Project

On a recent trip to project sites in Kenya, we interviewed several teachers at various schools. One of their greatest needs? Supplies. Textbooks. In many schools, 1 textbook is shared between 5 students—and some of the books are barely useable. Together, we can change this. Our goal is to gradually improve the textbook ratio of all of our schools, starting with 3 this year.
