Our Journey Sunshine Academy (OJ) is a preschool in rural Njoro, Kenya committed to providing quality education to deeply impoverished children. We not only educate around 100 students, but we feed them twice a day--for many, these are the only meals they will receive each day.
All about Our Journey Sunshine Academy
Our Journey Sunshine Junior Academy was first started in 2003 by the Reverends David and Anne Kinyanjui who saw a tremendous need to help street children in their community. Originally housed in a single room mud-walled structure, Sunshine Junior Academy (as it was originally named) quickly outgrew its initial space. In 2007, as fate would have it, Maureen Ahern, founder and Executive Director of Our Journey, Inc. (a 501 (c)3 organization in the United States, was introduced to Pastor David. In 2015, Sunshine Junior Academy and OJI formally partnered together and began looking for land upon which to move the still growing school. In 2016 the school would move to what is known as the Old Turkey Farm on the outskirts of Njoro with the expectation that this would ultimately become its permanent residing place. At the end of 2017, an opportunity to purchase 3 acres of land just outside of Njoro presented itself and the decision was made to move the school once again. In January 2018 a new 3000 square foot block structure was begun and by April 1st students and teachers began classes in their new school. In 2019, a new kitchen was opened and the school was officially dedicated in memory of Mama Maureen's granddaughter Ella Bothwell in June. Many plans are being made for permanent power and a deep water well. We have come so far, with so much farther to go.

The Boulder Rotary Club meets almost every Friday at noon at the Boulder Jewish Community Center, which is located at 6007 Oreg Avenue, Boulder, CO 80303. Meetings last until 1:30 pm.
A typical Rotary meeting involves several different facets, centered around one of our world class speakers. From CU athletic coaches to famous astronomers and from nationally-renowned restaurateurs to the creator of the Great American Beer Festival, you’ll be amazed at the collection speakers assembled by the Boulder Rotary Club.
When you enter the JCC main entrance, our meeting room is all the way down on the left. There will always be several people there waiting to greet you and to answer any questions you might have.
The Boulder Rotary Club is “the best place to be on a Friday afternoon in Boulder, Colorado,” and we look forward to seeing you there.
