Mr. Kenneth Okoth
Ken Okoth, 30, who teaches at the Potomac School in McLean, left his home in the slums on the outskirts of Nairobi in 1997 for a scholarship to St. Lawrence University in Upstate New York.
He went on to get a master's degree from Georgetown University School of Foreign Service, and currently lives in Washington DC. But strong ties to his home remain. Not only does Ken support his mother and several family members, but for the past several years, he has been the de facto head of the Red Rose School in his old neighborhood that serves orphans and other impoverished children of the slums that ring Nairobi.
Ken has also been an adjunct instructor at Georgetown University and a teacher at the Friends School of Baltimore. He was appointed to the St. Lawrence board of trustees in 2007. He is the recipient of a Silver Medal from the President's Award Scheme of Kenya.
Ken believes that a good education can empower the children of Kibera to overcome the challenges of extreme poverty, disease, and the social alienation they face every day.
