The people of Dago, Kenya are among the poorest people on the face of the earth. The average person has only 4 years of education and few have ever gone to high school. In 2011 we started the Bernard and Elsie Weiss Dago Scholarship Fund and, to date, we have awarded 32 full four year scholarshps and 4 of our students are now attending University. We are givng HOPE to the children and the community of Dago as we give them these high school scholarships. We are making the world a better place one child at a time.
