Cornerstone Preparatory Academy Expansion

The number of children attending Cornerstone Preparatory Academy has almost quadrupled in 4 years. From 93 students in 2016 to 347 students in 2020, God has brought us so many beautiful children in need of a quality education. We are currently raising $2.3 million to for the expansion of Cornerstone as we seek to educate the growing number of Kenya’s future leaders.

 
As more of our children grow and reach high school age, we are in need of additional classrooms and various resources to aid in their education. 

A $250,000 fundraising match is currently being offered.
