EFAC learned that it is a recipient of the humanitarian and non- profit award of the Jamhuriwood awards. The award will be presented to EFAC in a ceremony in Boston Saturday, August 14.
The Jamhuriwood awards were created by the Kenya Monitor to recognize exceptional work that Kenyans and friends of Kenya do to build Kenya through education, investment and philanthropy. The nominations committee noted that EFAC was given the award “in recognition of your significant educational impact on the lives of Kenyan students.”
The awards committee also noted that EFAC sets “new standards for leadership…and compassion.”
Education For All Children (EFAC) , http://www.educationforallchildren.org ; a New Hampshire based non-profit, provides scholarships to qualified and underprivileged secondary and university students in the developing world. In addition to scholarships EFAC provides mentoring and global connections to these exceptional students in order to encourage leadership, economic progress, and cultural understanding.
This year EFAC took its program into 8 US classrooms when it launched EFAC Dreams, a school based global citizenship program that involves US students with EFAC students to promote global citizenship through direct student contact.
Ryanne VanSciver, EFAC Dreams development coordinator, presented the EFAC program at the National Staff Development Committee in Seattle in July and as a result the EFAC Dreams program will target 40 new classrooms in the 2010-2011 academic year.
EFAC strives to meet the millennium goals through the education of children.
