Connecting Classrooms and Cultures Across the Globe
The Edoovillage is a school in western Kenya. This project seeks to connect classrooms through an exchange program involving in-person volunteering and online mentorship for both teachers and students. This will provide schools in developing countries with the opportunity to communicate and learn with their counterparts in developed countries.
Kar Geno is translated in Luo as, the Center for Hope. For several years now, the organization has been seeking and providing assistance, sustainability, and hope within their community of Asembo County. I learned of this organization through a website called Moving Worlds where you can volunteer your skills to better a community of people. Raphine Muga, one of Kar Geno's founders, expressed interest in my skills as a photographer and after a few Skype meetings and some emails later, the rest was history.
