Invest in the children of Kenya to create business, community and family leaders through enhanced education.
Empower children to be innovative, contributing members in their communities by teaching them how to think like designers.
Human Centered Design has played a major role in creating products, systems, and structures that are improving life for people in the developing world. It is vital that we continue this trend in the realm of education. By enhancing education with courses in design we are empowering them to be proactively involved in improving their communities.
Conduct face to face workshops that create an environment for co-designing student initiated projects. These projects will give the students a new way to think about big issues, a feeling of ownership, pride in their work and an awareness of issues facing their community that they could design solutions for.
