A New Invention, by Phillip Yiale

Phillip Yiale Namelok Dec 2014

We are grateful for the generosity of Tara from Brooklyn! Her donation to Lift the Lid will go toward the scholarship fund at Mogonjet Secondary School in Kericho, Kenya, which assists dedicated students who cannot afford their school fees. Her donation, along with others who have given to the fund at Mogonjet, will keep at least three students in school for an entire year.

Tara is a Speech Pathologist for middle graders, so we’d like to share with her an age-appropriate poem from Namelok Junior Academy in Kisamis, Kenya.

Phillip Yiale, a student in Year Five at Namelok, has written a rhyming poem that heeds a warning to preserve our Earth called “A New Invention.”  You can read about his urgent call for a new invention here. Thank you, Tara!
