ABOUT US

Connecting Countries Adopt-a-School was born in, and continues to be based in Hamilton, Ontario Canada.

Our purpose is to promote the education of our children in Kenya and Canada through the support of projects designed to improve the quality of educational environments in Kenyan public schools. The educational environments include:

  • physical facilities of the schools (latrines, hand washing stations, water storage)
  • curricular/instructional (supporting learning expectations and augmenting instructional supplies)
  • health, safety and emotional well-being of students

Our programs ultimately benefit students from both countries. Though the benefits to children in Kenya may seem more tangible and immediate, both sets of students learn about the lives of their peers in a very different part of the world, make personal connections with them, and realize that they can make a difference in the lives of others.

Connecting Countries Adopt-a-School is a registered Canadian Charitable Organization directing 3 charitable programs in Ol Joro Orok/Nyahururu area of Nyandarua County in Central Kenya:

1. WASH- (Latrines building, Clean Hands-Personal Hygiene, Rain Water Harvesting)

2. Continuing Support- provision of school supplies and classroom learning materials

3. Pen Pals- letter writing exchange between students in our 9 Kenyan primary schools and students in Canada and other interested countries.
