Patricia Crossley, an educator, and Rod Crossley, an engineer, have been volunteering in Kenya for six months every year since 2001. Patricia has a mandate to work with 48 primary and 14 secondary schools in Western Kenya, a poor rural area. They have been involved in educational projects, the installation of simple wells, scholarships and microfinance. With the help of donations and some Rotary International grants as well as self-financing, they have been able to make a difference to some lives.
We take on many projects each year, from building new reliable water supplies for villages, providing business skills classes, funding for job skills, teaching non-violent cooperation in schools and communities, to "Read For The Top" programs to promote literacy.
