In June 2008 the Scranton family took a trip to Africa. We went to Kenya in East Africa on a safari and saw incredible wildlife. But the highlight of our trip was a visit to the Burguret Primary School in the shadow of Mt. Kenya, on the edge of the Great Rift Valley, near the town of Nanyuki.
We were the first foreign visitors to the school. The students performed Traditional Kikuyu songs and dances in our honor.
Inspired by this trip, The Kenyan School Project was formed to work to improve the lives of children in Kenya by promoting better educational opportunities and health. In 2010 KSP formed a partnership with the Burguret Primary School to help the school build a school kitchen and dining area. At the end of 2010 we launched our first fundraising campaign to raise funds for this first project. See our Completed Projects page for this and other projects we have accomplished since 2010.
