Koins for Kenya began responding to the most vital and immediate need… schools.  When we first arrived most classrooms were made of sticks and mud.  Leaky thatch roofs and dirt floors left the children sitting in mud during the rains, or in dusty, chigger-infested dust when it was dry.  Test scores within our schools was abysmal.  After providing comfortable facilities, updated classroom materials, and basic supplies, the test scores soared.  After only a decade, 7 of the top 10 schools in the county were sponsored by Koins.
