About Zoe Kelland

Zoe is the Digital Campaigner and Designer for Global Citizen. In her 'spare' time Zoe co-founded and runs Nakuru Children's Project, a small NGO which aims to relieve poverty and improve education for children in Kenya.

Why Zoe Kelland is a Global Citizen

I know children in Kenya who are smarter, kinder, and better human beings than me in every way, yet they are afforded a fraction of the opportunities I have been given. I believe this is deeply unfair. I hope we will one day live in a world where every child has an equal chance and believe it's the responsiblity of every individual to make this happen.
