Hopewell, NJ organization founded and led by Dr. Angwenyi, Global Connections Kenya provides young people an opportunity to acquire service learning across the globe. Our programs are primarily focused on service learning and global leadership.

Kenya House is a place to gather with friends, colleagues, and community members to network, share ideas, and put them into action. Kenya House will work to further efforts between Kenya and the United States to participate in meaningful, educational, and cultural exchange programs, so as to build global bridges of understanding. Four times a year, enjoy good food and participate in the Kenya Experience (minus the cost of airfare or distant travel!) Kick off your shoes and slide into comfortable slippers or socks as you dine in a relaxed atmosphere — and also support Kenyan projects that improve the lives of people in the villages. Visitors to Kenya House will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the Kenyan culture by sampling Kenyan cuisine, hearing the Swahili language spoken, listening to Kenyan music, and socializing in a modern-style Kenyan home.
