Eight Punahou teachers traveled to Kenya as part of a global learning fellowship during the summer break. The trip was a partnership with Kenya Connect, a nonprofit organization that works to connect children around the world and nurture cross-cultural exchange.
The group taught lessons at primary schools and conducted a three-hour workshop for local teachers in Wamunyu, a small village about two hours from Nairobi. They also had the opportunity to learn more about the work Kenya Connect does to improve the local community.
The trip left a strong impression on Academy English faculty member Marisa Proctor. “We all benefit in some way from being connected to Punahou, and we bear a responsibility as global citizens to do something with that privilege,” she said.
