Our friends in the band Low have been involved in a project to help increase adult literacy in Kenya. They’ve used money from Christmas shows this year and in 2005 to help fund the building of a school in Namuncha, Kenya.
You can read a bit about all this from Low’s Alan Sparhawk, on Low’s own website.
There’s also an article about all this in the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
And then, you can read a whole lot more about the Maasai School Project on their website, and see photos of Alan’s trip to Kenya this past August.
Because often things that should go without saying don’t: you could do worse things than donate to this project yourself.
