- Carol Turner, Founder and Executive Director, e3kids
e3kids' passion is to educate students in the U. S. to the common struggles that exist in developing countries with kids their age. Helping students discover a vision of becoming a "world changer" is the perfect way to increase involvement, and make lasting change in the lives of vulnerable kids at Royal Kids School, Kenya. Therefore, e3kids works with schools and organizations to custom fit a project that address real needs they can work towards changing. We desire to impact both sides of the project by supply a hands-on component for the U.S. students to get behind.
The water beads have a double impact in the lives of kids on both sides of the water project. The U.S. students have the chance to string and create beaded bracelets with 100 % recycled beads hand crafted by single mothers and young school girls in Kenya. The finished bracelets are then sold by students. As a result, the funds raised provide water filtration systems for families attending Royal Kids School. Each bracelet sold not only promotes education for Kenyan girls but also provides 200,000 gallons toward the million gallon Uzima Water Filter bucket System. When 5 bracelets are sold, a filtration system can be purchased for a needy family.
e3kids strives to empower students in the U.S. to serve others with purpose by educating them on issues that 75% of the kids living in severe poverty face on a daily basis, and giving them a practical way to equip others by making positive, lasting changes for those less fortunate.
Serving a purpose greater than ourselves.
Promoting change & serving others.
The impact made, and becoming a lifelong world changer.
