Give Us Wings: Womens Education in Kenya


Dream of building deep connections while making positive change in developing communities?
Join Give Us Wings, an international nonprofit organization as we travel to Nyaoga, Kenya this summer!

A group of Yale students will live with families and health clinic staff in this rural village, while partnering with a local Womens Group to implement development projects.  Together, we will build a school for women forced to leave primary schooling, as well as collaborate on projects already in progress, including cooperative sustainable agriculture training, safe water irrigation, and a locally-run health clinic.

Give Us Wings mission is to work in partnership with Kenyan and Ugandan communities to facilitate long-term transformation and self-sufficiency.  This summer, we are working with the Victoria Young Womens Group, a group of women ages 16-24 who are taking the lead in lifting their community out of poverty.

Qualifications: eagerness to learn just as much as you teach.

We are still looking for more participants in this project this summer.  Please contact  This email address is hidden from email harvesters via JavaScript  if you are interested or for more information.  In the meantime, meet some of the incredible families of Nyaoga.
