We are so proud to share our Co-Founders Nathan Roberts and Michael Kimpur’s TED talk on The Power of Cross Cultural Friendship. They share stories and lessons learned on their way to founding Daylight Center and School.
We hope you take the time to watch:
TED described it as: Nathan Roberts, a suburban Minnesotan, and Michael Kimpur, a nomadic Kenyan tribal elder, make unlikely best friends. As cross-cultural relationships continue to become more critical, the duo’s experiences, misunderstandings, and successes serve as a practical and inspiring example.
Pembe (left) and his friends go through A LOT of pencils. Pembe is a star student in his class. He works hard not just for himself but for his Mom and Dad who never got a chance to go to school. He only has one foot, but he doesn’t let this slow him down. He plays soccer with his friends and studied his way to the top of his class!
Pembe wants to go to college and provide for his family and to be an inspiration to all kids with disabilities.
Daylight Teachers believe that all our kids will go far. This six grade handwriting class is just one example of their pursuit of student excellence.
My name is Tabitha.
I am so determined to write legibly.
I will straighten my letter and make them stand free and independent.
I will smoothen them and make them beautiful; until they smile back at me.
Those who read my work will enjoy it. They will see how neat and organized I am.
They will also think I am beautiful.
So, let us write legibly for people to read our work with ease, and also think well of us.
Thank you for helping providing lessons and passionate teachers for our children.
Your gifts make this possible.
