OUR MISSION is to inspire the next generation to be learners, critical thinkers, and ultimately ethical leaders and changemakers. We collaborate at the grassroots level with teachers, conservationists, and students in rural communities of Morocco and Kenya to develop high-quality libraries and programs in literacy and environmental education that empower young people with knowledge. ​


One of our recent newsletters is about the Mara Girls Leadership School in Talek, Kenya: the 1st graduating class, a budding Conservation Club, and a video interview with 14-year-old Jackline about her dreams for the future. Guess what Jackline's dream career is? Take a look.

"We are here at Mara Girls, to bring a lot of changes to the Maa community... to change them to realize that education is the best thing that is the key to the life of a young girl." 

~ Jackline, age 14
