Thos. R. Birnie & Sons is proud to support Connecting
Connecting Countries Adopt-a-School was born in, and continues to be based in Hamilton, Ontario Canada.
Our purpose is to promote the education of our children in Kenya and Canada through the support of projects designed to improve the quality of education environments in Kenyan public schools. The education environments include:
- physical facilities of the schools (latrines, classroom floors etc.)
- curricular/instructional (supporting expectations and/or augmenting instructional supplies)
- health, safety and emotional well-being of students
Our programs ultimately benefit students from both countries. Though the benefits to children in Kenya may seem more tangible and immediate, both sets of students learn about life for their peers in a very different part of the world, make personal connections with them, and realize that they can make a difference in the lives of others.
