What’s Next for Acacia in Kenya? A Vocational-Technical School!
In the months ahead, Acacia in Kenya will propose, develop, and launch a capital campaign for the purpose of buying land for vocational-technical school and developing a plan for the school’s initial infrastructure. Although not yet finalized, the proposal will include these goals:
  • that the results of the vocational-technical training — agriculture, tailoring, and more — will provide income so that the school is self&mdashsustaining and has the financial resources to decide how to best leverage the school’s activities for community development.
  • that the Kenyan NGO or local community partner who runs the vocational-technical school will evaluate the appropriateness and feasibility of continuing the sponsorship/scholarship program.
  • a commitment to seeking grant money to share with a Kenyan partner or NGO for qualifying future projects our local partners may propose.
