Josh Brake Founder of Kutoa Foundation Reaches Out To Mrs Joyce

This morning I checked the blog to find a message that makes me so proud to be a teacher. Josh Brake the founder of an absolutely inspirational foundation left me a message. I would like to personally thank Josh because it is people collaborating together that we can work toward helping every child get an education in the world. I would encourage everyone to check out Josh’s foundation website and get involved.
This is the message that brought tears to my eyes so early in the morning.

Hi Mrs. Joyce.

the second picture inspired me to reach out. “Don’t be afraid to take risks. Just do it!”

That statement would summarize what my wife and I ventured to do about 2 years ago when we launched Kutoa (a Swahili word which means, to give).

It’s a simple idea that has found a real connection point with students & educators.

Here’s a quick video that explains what we’re about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTCYFDWOYLI

We now have members in 113 countries and are launching a classroom component that will allow students to have a voice in where Kutoa grants funds each month and well as invite others to join through social media and track their impact individually and as a class/school.

We are all volunteers that run Kutoa and have begun following trails of new potential networks and your bog (and you behind it) was something that came up as something I think could be a real fit.

I’d like to see us include your blog in our weekly email that goes out to people all over the world and see if there was a time that, after you learned a bit more about Kutoa through the links, if we could connect (Skype? – I’m located in Canada)) and see if there’s something more to be had, that would be great.

Here’s a link to our classroom component: https://www.kutoa.org/classrooms

And (finally!)…here’s a free subscription (donated by one of our members) so that you can see what we’re about in realtime.

Just click on the link and you’ll be able to see your projects and vote. 🙂

Thanks for taking the time to read this and know that I’m inspired by the way you are inspiring others – including your students! What a wonderful impact you are having!

    Kutoa is a web-based global philanthropic foundation that’s enabling people to give the equivalent of $1 Canadian dollar per month to a different humanitarian cause.

    Kutoa has partnered with W.T.P (World Food Project) to battle world hunger and to keep children healthy. This organisation has saved the lives of many refugees and poor children across the globe.

    Kutoa has partnered with world medic to create a well that brings water to 50 families.

    I’ve learnt that kutoa means to give in Swahili and that kutoa is a web page based on enableing people to donate a dollar per month to give to different humanitarian causes.
    I like that you traveled around the world to India and went to a home for girls and then went to Pakistan and met a slave that has to build bricks, and then you struck a thought and told your wife and agreed commit your savings to a foundation called kutoa to help others.

    Wow! Thank you all SOOOOO much for your comments. They were both encouraging and insightful. I can tell that you are taking your learning seriously and are poised to make a real global difference!

    I’m not sure when your school year ends in Australia (in Canada our school year runs from September to June) but I do hope you reach your goal of 100,000 hits. That would be very exciting!

    I will arrange a time with your teacher when I can visit your class. It’s a little far for me to travel so we’ll have to make our time together one via Skype. Isn’t it amazing to see how connected we really can be and the impact we can make when we work together!

    Here’s a link to Kutoa’s latest weekly email – you made it in. (woo-hoo!)
