Ki-wim-bi

Swahili, Noun (Kih – whim- bee): A ripple; a wave

Our mission is to partner with underserved communities to create educational opportunities through locally run libraries and community learning centers.

Every Moment Counts

Your view of the world may not yet include a community in rural western Kenya where children often walk barefoot for miles to schools that offer little more than desks, a blackboard, and a teacher who lacks resources necessary to enable students to succeed academically. We see a world where all people are empowered through education to enrich their lives and reach their fullest potential.

In Kenya we…

  • Support underserved schools so students can pass a mandatory national exam
  • Prepare students in 3 schools (approximately 200 students) with focus on the foundational subjects of English and Math, and keeping them in school with a nutritious daily lunch
  • Foster learning with intensive small group tutoring and one-on-one mentoring
  • Provide access to books, newspapers and other resources in our Library, and satellite libraries and through regular delivery of books to over 70 schools in villages nearby
  • Provide vocational training for young adults
  • Provide agricultural training to enable farmers and families to grow crops more efficiently and to counter deforestation
  • Support cultural preservation with a museum of historical local artifacts and instruction in traditional crafts and skills

An exciting conversation with author Wanjiku wa Ngugi about her book “Seasons in Hippoland“. As reviewed by the Chicago University Press, “Captivating and enchanting, Seasons in Hippoland plays with the tradition of magic realism. Every image in this novel is a story, and every story is a call for resistance to anyone who tries to confine our imagination or corrupt our humanity.”
