Sacramento New Technology High School freshmen studying Africa and the effects of imperialism within the broader theme of empathy partnered with East African Center to help provide aide to women and children in Kilifi, Kenya.

In groups, students developed projects that targeted particular needs of the organization. Some sold bags created by the EAC’s sewing cooperative.  Other groups developed fundraisers to raise money and awareness, or collected resources.

In the end, students raised almost $1,000 for the organization, and decided to pool the money to sponsor the education of three students for one year.

In addition, students Trevor McKenzie, Nick Johnson, Nicky Rahman, Brandy Ramos and Maliyah Renteria created a video for the EAC to use to raise awareness of and support for their programs. Click here to view their video on EAC’s website.
