Kibera School for Girls

The Kibera School for Girls (KSG) was founded in 2009 and is the slum’s first free primary school for girls.

The Kibera School for Girls is comprised of a community of caregivers—teachers, parents and staff—deeply invested in girls’ education. With a teacher-student ratio of just 1:8 compared to 1:87 in Kibera, KSG’s learning environment fosters success!

Been in the Storm So Long

This collaborative project, titled “‘Been in the Storm So Long’: Yale Divinity School and the Black Ministry—One Hundred and Fifty Years of Black Theological Education,” attempts to make a modest but important contribution to the correction of this oversight by chronicling and preserving the history of the black presence at Yale Divinity School from the 1830s to the mid-1980s. This study explicitly links church and academy as it also attempts to examine the impact that theological education at Yale has had on the lives and careers of generations of black ministers, educators, missionaries, and Christian activists, many of whom have made significant contributions both at home and abroad.
