When Osborn Ng’imor ’18 was growing up in West Pokot, a region in Kenya on the border of Uganda, he said there were few books for him to read. Despite the paucity of literature around him, Ng’imor excelled at school and was accepted at Bowdoin.
Now he wants to bring books to other Kenyan students, to improve their education and boost their opportunities. This summer, he received a Thomas A. McKinley ’06 and Hannah Weil McKinley ’08 grant from Bowdoin Career Planning to build the first public library in West Pokot. Read more about Osborn Ng’imor’s library.
