Learn how you can make a difference in Kenya


An Evening in Kenya, hosted by the New Thought Center for Spiritual Living’s Global Outreach Team, will be held Oct. 20 at 7 p.m. at the center.

The event is intended to bring awareness of Kenya and how education is key to change in the community. Lake Oswego resident Rinda Hayes and Joseph Mwengi, co-directors of Kenya Keys, will present information about the organization is making a difference in Kenya.

This is Mwengi’s first visit to the United States — accompanying him will be his nephew Emmanuel Mwengi, who recently earned a master’s degree in pharmacy through the generousity of Kenya Keys. Aaron Smith of World Children’s Chorus, which works to raise money for an orphanage in Kenya, will also be in attendance.

There will be opportunities for attendees to sign up to get involved with local efforts to support Kenya Keys at the event and well as purchase items made in Kenya.

The New Thought Center is located at 10th Street and C Avenue in Lake Oswego.
