The Key to Africa’s Future: Educating Children

Thousands of miles from home, Michelle Stark is changing the world.

In 2005 the Homewood, Illinois native founded Matanya’s Hope, a nonprofit dedicated to educating Kenyan children. When I accompanied Michelle to Matanya Primary School in Matanya, Kenya (located just outside of Nanyuki) and saw the absolute hopelessness these children and their families face — severe poverty, hunger, and lack of clothing – I realized why Stark is dedicating her life to this cause. The key to Africa’s future is educating its children.
