Replication in East Pokot
Corner of Hope has inspired a number of other initiatives, both in Kenya and beyond. AMI EsF is currently raising funds to introduce Montessori education to the East Pokot region in Kenya. East Pokot is a region with a high need for quality education to address the challenges for communities living in poverty in one of the harshest living climates in Kenya. At least seven people from the Pokot community will be identified to become Montessori teachers with a nationally recognized teaching qualification. Skilled and motivated teachers from the local community are key to increasing access to quality education and to breaking the cycle of poverty in the East Pokot region. Funds raised will go towards providing full tuition scholarships, a set of handmade materials, living and study expenses for eligible candidates. We aim to raise US$5000 per candidate.
