Crossroads Springs Africa facilitates secondary and post-secondary education for disadvantaged Kenyan youth so they can reach their potential and become sources of economic and leadership strength in their communities.


With a $10,000 donation from a family foundation, Crossroads Springs Africa will be able to support a new initiative in Kenya to help improve the lives of those students who did not qualify for university. We are excited to adopt a program started by The Friends of Kakamega and the Kakamega Care Centre. Strong Young People will expand our mission of helping deserving but vulnerable young people build strong, independent, and healthy lives for themselves and their families. The program will offer training in small business planning and income-oriented farm production or trading to about 15 high school grads, while also providing them micro-grants and knowledge about micro-finance lenders as they launch their independent ventures.

Hamisi Students
Happy Students During Field Trip

Kisumu Field Trip

CSA’s Hamisi area students recently went on a Kisumu field trip. They went in two hired busses which took them to Kisumu City after meeting up at the Gavudunyi Friends Church central meeting point. In Kisumu, first they each bought a book at a bookshop, then they found food on their own while walking around town in small (supervised) groups. They then visited a zoo-like conservation area run by Kenya Wildlife Services called Impala Park, and, finally, they went to a fisherman's landing on the shores of Lake Victoria.To learn more about the field trip read a letter from Lydia.
