About the Unstoppable Foundation:
In 2011, groundbreaking author and founder of the Unstoppable Foundation, Cynthia
Kersey, went on an inspiring journey to Kenya. Kersey was visiting to see the progress
of the schools that Unstoppable Foundation played a role in funding in rural Maasai Mara
region of Kenya, including an all-girls boarding secondary school, named Kisaruni, or
“Land of Peace”. With a mission to empower youth through education, the Unstoppable
Foundation has already made tremendous investments in primary level education through
its international charitable partner, Free The Children.
In just three years, the Unstoppable Foundation has funded 26 schoolhouses in three African
nations and provided partial funding for a secondary school for girls. This vital education will
empower a total of 71,960 children over the next 20 years with the life-long gift of an education
and a real future. In addition, the Unstoppable Foundation has given six communities access
to clean, healthcare and income training for the parents so that the education model is sustainable.
Through the partnership of outstanding in-country partners, the Unstoppable Foundation supports the Adopt a Village development model which fosters ownership of the project by community members – partnering with them to provide education and sustainable solutions to help them lift themselves out of poverty. It’s not charity but community empowerment and sustainability in the truest sense.
