Mission Statement:

Connecting Countries helps Canadians enhance the health and education of school children in developing countries through sustainable programs and accountable partnerships.

Our programs promote health and education through:

  • Latrine Building:
    School latrines (toilets) are built to improve student health, increase student attendance and in many cases to keep Kenyan primary schools open.
  • Water Harvesting:
    10,000 litre water storage tanks are provided to Kenyan primary schools to collect and store valued rain water from school roof tops.
  • Clean Hands:
    Hygiene education, school hand washing stations, and large hand washing troughs for students completes the sanitation cycle.
  • Continuing Support:
    Funding of needed school supplies such as pens, pencils, notepaper, textbooks.
  • Pen Pal Letter Writing:
    North American and Kenyan students exchange cultural information via letter writing. Personal relationships are built.
