Inspire Students with Astronomy in Kenya: Only 14 Days Left [UPDATED]
Education & EcologyKenya is a land of diversity. It is known for breath-taking wild lands of giraffe, zebra and lion but also its squalid inner-city slums. Inspiring the next generation of scientists is a way to empower Kenyans to preserve their own biodiversity and solve the plague of poverty. Science education is also a way to prevent the conflicts which arise from fundamentalism and superstition. It starts with education.
CultureMany cultures here have star stories which date back thousands of years, but these stories have not been taught to the current children. These ancient stories die with their elders. A planetarium is a way to preserve culture and to appreciate the diversity of other cultures. Your gift to bring the planetarium to Kenya will pay large dividend to the future generations of this planet. Even a small contribution goes a long way in a developing nation.
