Small Solutions Big Ideas was founded in 2010 as a result of African refugees living in our community who wanted to help their countries and Africa. We began with education and the opportunity that the MIT laptop offered to rural isolated schools. ? This was the beginning, now we have a mature community foundation in Kenya with whom we partner on broad issues related to education and youth leadership.
The Rise Kenyan Youth organization is on the road to establishing sustainability and becoming a youth voice for Africa = to build awareness of climate and drought. African countries have struggled to reclaim their natural resources as independent countries. The continent contributes only 5% of the carbon pollution creating climate warming crisis, but suffers life threatening loss of water resources, trees and wildlife.
