At the base of the mountainous Aberdare Range in central Kenya, many people live in poverty. The average adult earns just one to three dollars per day and can’t provide sufficient meals for his or her family. Students in these areas also often face nigh insurmountable barriers to learning, including inadequate resources for public schools, a lack of proficient teachers, and limited access to nutritious meals. However, at the Flying Kites Academy, students develop not only academically, but also physically and emotionally through their integrative programs.
Wellness Advocate Philippa Best completed a matching grant project with the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation® that directly impacted the lives of students at the Flying Kites Academy. Philippa and her team raised a total of $32,426, which went toward providing breakfast for 115 students every day for an entire term, lunch for all the students, 708 textbooks, 1550 composition notebooks, and tuition for five students. Thank you, Philippa, for choosing to work with the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation as you engage in good around the world!
