WMI is the best. We love the Swahili people

The Rarieda Constituency of Siaya in Kenya has a total of 150 primary and secondary schools and 10 tertiary institutions. Brian is a WMI Graduate Scholar who graduated from Kenyatta University with a bachelors in library and information science in 2023. As a native of Siaya, Brian noted that the sub-county has only two community libraries, one public and one private. He further noted that the two libraries are not able to serve the demand of the regional users. 

The Wagoro Community Library and Resource Center Initiative will establish both a mobile and physical library to address the dire need for increased access to reading resources and information. The Center plans to serve 1000 local students and community members by January 2025.

Dear Friends of WMI,

We are OVER 92% to our campaign goal of $125,000! 🎉🎉🎉

This means that 46 young women leaders from around the world now have access to life-changing academic scholarships. THANK YOU!!

With your support, we can reach our goal and give the gift of higher education to 4 more deserving young women from low-income countries.

You are empowering changemakers like Jean Masebo (featured below), a 2023 WMI Scholar from Malawi. In 2023, Malawi was ranked the 24th least developed country in the world. Over 80% of its population lives in poverty. Growing up as one of five children, Jean excelled in school, and was one of the few girls selected from her community to continue into secondary education. Tragically, her father died shortly after, rendering their family destitute and unable to pay for Jean's continued schooling. She dropped out for one year, and was then able to return through a scholarship. Filled with gratitude, Jean recognized how life-changing a quality education is, and determined to "pay it forward" as an educator for children in low-income communities.

Now studying for her bachelor's degree in Education, Jean shares in the dream of each supporter of WMI: that every young person could realize their full potential as a leader and changemaker in their own communities, by harnessing the transformative power of education.

Young changemakers like Jean are utilizing their education to empower a whole new generation of changemakers.

Will you do the same, and empower a new generation of passionate young leaders by giving a gift today?

Last month, the WMI Fellowship in Kenya hosted a community event at Young Life Africa Childrens Home. The Fellowship learned about the programs and facilities available through the childrens home to encourage healthy development for children. 

The children were taught personal hygiene skills, and took part in quizzes, dance-offs, and fun games. 

Through combined efforts, the WMI Kenya Fellowship raised around 25,000 KES (approximately 190 USD) to support the children’s home! This contribution makes a lasting impact on the lives of these children, empowering them to reach their full potential. 

Your support makes collaborations like this possible. Thank you!
