With a goal of giving life to learning by tapping into the wisdom of the room, we invite you to the first in a series of virtual lunches where we hope you will share your perspectives, ideas and personal stories.

Our first lunch is Saturday, August 15, at noon. Join us online with Benjamin Walmer of the Highlands Dinner Club in New Jersey and Kenyan Dennis Ang’ani, Chef/Owner of Nairobi’s Sextet, who together will go over the recipe with you and join the discussion on food, while they cook.

Food for Thought

How does a child learn on an empty stomach? In under-privileged areas of sub-Saharan Africa, kids face this issue daily. In rural Kenya, these kids, some of whom live miles from school, typically walk home at lunch for a meal that may or may not be there – while at school they try to prepare for high-stakes exams that determine if they will continue with their education after the Eighth Grade. 


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. Kiwimbi International, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, is providing children with an opportunity to learn so that they can create a productive life for themselves. We see a world where all people are empowered through education to enrich their lives and reach their fullest potential.

Kiwimbi is comprised of two organizations, a 501(c)(3) in the US and a corresponding NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) in Kenya. We work to enrich the lives of families in sub-Saharan Africa by creating educational opportunities that empower individuals and strengthen the community.
