Empowering Speakers

Better World Project

The Better World Project hosted an assembly with three guest speakers from Free The Children projects in Kenya.

Students had an opportunity to hear Maasai Mama Helen and two of her students talk about what empowerment means to them.  Afterwards, a few of our students had an opportunity to share stories and hugs and learn more about life in different parts of the world. 

Mamas in Kenya make and sell Rafiki bracelets  to help earn a living and send their children to school.  Bracelts (for yourself or for a holiday gift) will be sold in front of the cafeteria during intermediate lunch.
