Meet the Founder

Hi, I’m Chris and the founder of The Polkadot Library, Kenya.  From 2011 to 2013, I lived in a beautiful little town in the Kerio Valley of Kenya called Kabarnet. As a Peace Corps volunteer here, the people of the Kalenjin Tribe quickly welcomed me as their friend, neighbor, and family.

Our Mission

The Polkadot Library was established in 2016 to provide sustainable education for underprivileged children in Kabarnet and to promote gender equality in education, located in Baringo County, Kenya.

Location

The Polkadot Library is located in Kabarnet, Baringo County, Kenya in the Central Rift Valley, close to Lake Baringo and 265km northwest of Nairobi.  Kabarnet was named after a missionary from Australia, Albert Edmund Barnett, who was member of the Africa Inland Mission and came first to central Kenya in 1908.
