To Be A Kid

We recently took our 19 oldest students to our own Ajiri summer camp. We didn't take them there to teach them independence; they've got enough of that already. We took them to camp to teach them how to be a child.


Tea and Teenagers

When school fees are paid, uniforms are bought, food is on the table, and there is a stable presence of support, our students inevitably do better in school. But sometimes, they don't. Potential, of course, is harder to measure than test scores.


The Business of Optimism

Young adults in Africa make up 20% of the population, yet 60% of the unemployed. When we sponsor Ajiri students, are we setting them up for failure? Numbers tell one story, people tell another.
