Maggie’s School is located in the Turkana region in the far northwestern part of Kenya. In 2008, Wink McLeod built the school in memory of her daughter, Maggie McLeod, who was killed in a car accident when she was 19 years old.
Currently, we offer schooling to children from preschool through eighth grade. When funds allow, we also provide scholarships based on need to our eighth grade graduates to attend high school and university.

Wink's legacy continues to change lives. We are proud to approach the time where our school in Kenya will be able to support itself. Nearly ten years of hard work has brought so much to the children there. They have uniforms, textbooks and desks, a well for drinking water, including dental and medical attention among other things.
Thanks to the generous support of so many Wink's vision is still changing lives. Please visit the school's page to learn what we've done and what is needed to keep these children learning and growing.
