KDSL is Building a School in Kenya

KDSL is passionate about helping children gain access to free education. According to the UN, there were approximately 130 million children without access to basic education in 2010. Tackling education is a big challenge, but one we are committed to helping solve.

We’re doing our part by partnering with Change Heroes, a non-for profit organization that invented a simple and innovative platform to raise money to build a school. Through the Change Heroes platform, KDSL pioneered a friend-funding movement with a platform that lets anyone easily raise $10,000 with their friends to fund a school in the developing world.

The formula is simple: 33 friends give $3.33/day for 3 months = $10,000. That's about the price of a latte a day! There is also an option to give $1.67/day -- or about the price of a tea -- for 6 months. And, of course, participants can give a one-time donation of any amount they choose. Change Heroes keeps KDSL posted as funds come in, and offer tips and support along the way. Once we reach our $10,000 goal, the Change Heroes team will continue to loop us in on the development of our project. The first bricks for our school in Kenya will be laid in approximately 9 months. In less than 2 years, children actually get to learn in the school.

Fully trained teachers will teach in our school and will be paid by the local government in the area the school is built. KDSL will continue to support the school with resources and professional development. Students will not only learn how to read, write, and do math, they will also learn about gender equality, finances, how to prevent diseases, and how to lift themselves, their families, and their villages out of poverty.

KDSL looks forward to this long-term project with Change Heroes and the children of Kenya who attend our school. If you would like to be a part of our project, please see the link below.
