Chris takes His mother to Harvard University

"When I graduated here 24 years ago, my mother was absent from the ceremony, because it was too expensive for her to make the trip from my native village in Kenya to the United States. So you can imagine the joy I felt last week as I brought her for her first visit to the university, at the age of 83! Though uneducated herself, my mother has always valued education and indeed remains one of the smartest people I know." Chris Mburu

Rwandese girl with a dream

Education is a human right! It should be accessible to all and at the same level. Sadly this is not a reality in Kenya and most of Africa but it will change...there is hope.
A Rwandese teen has already edged out her part in this. Read the article to see the number of Ivy league colleges she's been called to.
There is hope...
