Students’ donation provides science equipment to students in Kenya
Glenbard West’s Global Connect pen pal club and AP Human Geography students helped to raise money to support Miondoni and the Mbaikini Girls School in Kenya. The students there have struggled with their science exams partly because they never had used the equipment that they were tested on. The donation from Glenbard West students is thrilling for the teachers and students and will help Miondoni and Mbaikini Girls School to strengthen its science education.
