Faith Kiio and Tomi Dobbs: Why did you start Faith Kenya Mission?
Tomi Dobbs is a 9 year old fourth grader from Lexington, Massachusetts. Her mom, Faith Kiio, leads the Student Education initiative in Faith Kenya Mission, a charity organization. They believe that together, with friends and schoolmates, kids can make a difference in each other’s lives with regard to literacy, gun violence, and generation poverty – both here in the United States, as well as abroad.
In episode 264 of the Fraternity Foodie Podcast, we find out why Tomi wanted to get involved in literacy, gun violence, and poverty eradication at such a young age, why Faith started Faith Kenya Mission, what children can do in school to support each other so we can avoid gun violence, more about the books they collect and the value it provides in Kenya, whether boys or girls are better at math, how they create employment opportunities here in the United States with the book collection team, how much funds has been raised towards clean water and sanitation for the children in Kenya, and the need for healthcare missions in underprivileged communities with a special focus on children and women.
