Kenyan Schoolhouse Program is Born

The driest government meeting is hushed and filled with urgency once a young woman describes her life as a sex slave. Students are filled with outrage when they learn that children pick the coffee sold at their student union while hungry and covered in pesticides.

But then we share our interview with the four young men to the right, former child laborers, who won scholarships in architecture, chemistry, engineering and business after ten years of support through our Kenyan School House Program. I almost dropped my camera when one said to me, “ You don’t remember me, but I remember you. I was ten years old picking coffee when you and the camera crew came to the plantation in 2002 and enrolled me in school.
