March 2021

The Kenya Rising staff regularly take pictures during field work, when they are out of the office conducting small workshops or visiting families and schools. To encourage great photography and to provide motivation for taking the best pictures possible, we on the Friends of Kenya Rising board have been voting for our favorite photos and in doing so choosing the “Top Ten” photos for each month. Because the fruits of our staff members’ work is informative and inspiring, we are not surprised that the photos they take are also informative and inspiring. As we share below the Top Ten photos from March 2021, we would like to voice our appreciation for all staff members’ efforts supporting students and families as they build a better future. Thanks to each and every one of the dedicated and hard working Kenya Rising staff.
