The Pamoja Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Washington, D.C. and in Kenya. It was founded in 2015 with the goal of inspiring and empowering vulnerable children and youth in low income communities in Kenya through literacy and education opportunities. Our mission is to promote and provide free and affordable access to books, information, and critical programs necessary for success. We desire to be an avenue for nurturing dreams and a catalyst for developing bright minds.
Terry, our founder was born and raised in Meru, a place she still calls home today and one that is dear to her heart. Having grown up in Meru she knows the only path to a successful future to the millions of children living there is literacy and education. Making information and knowledge readily accessible is the only way to achieve this. Her dream is, through reading, to inspire every child to learn the world around them, the limitless opportunities it has to offer, and to start dreaming big early.
Together, as the word Pamoja means in Swahili, we can help shape the future of the world, one child, one community at a time.
