The Komobo Secondary School Project
Situated just outside Kapsabet, at the feet of the Nandi Hills, is the small village of Komobo. This region of Kenya has been called home by dozens of elite athletes since the nation's independence, and CWA's early connection with Olympic gold medalist Peter Rono has made this secondary school a longtime partner with the foundation. Komobo Secondary is a rural school that is plagued by lack of funding and lack of resources. That is why Cross World Africa has endeavored to fund scholarships and projects for the students and the school since 2007.
In 2011, project leader (and high school student!) Ms. Giavanni Alves helped CWA initiate a technology program at the Komobo Secondary School. In the years that followed, the Alves Family continued to support this project, eventually building a computer center. In 2016, CWA raised additional donations to provide tuition/fee scholarships and printers for the Komobo Technology Project.
