Girls’ Dormitory for Uranga Secondary School
When Julian Lennon visited the Millennium Village Project in Sauri, Kenya, in early 2014, he had the opportunity to speak directly with schoolchildren. They expressed that their passion for pursuing secondary education was hindered by the long, unsafe walks to school each day.
A year later, the dormitory continues to be a great asset to the school, where currently 10 girls are on Connect To Learn scholarships, also funded by The Cynthia Lennon Scholarship for Girls, and living in the dormitory.
The former Education Coordinator of the Sauri Millennium Village, Richard Ogeda, said about the project, “The school and community are very appreciative as the dormitory will go a long way in ensuring safety and comfort of girls in the school.”
