The Nobelity Project focuses on educational and environmental progress in East Africa and at home in Central Texas.

Our vision is simple: every child has the right to a quality education.


Our mission is direct: we bridge gaps in education so each child has a ladder to success in school and in life.


Our commitment to you is clear: your support is used in the best possible way to build a brighter future for 25,000 children every year.


and YOU helped make a lot dreams come true.

Since 2010 we have opened 40 libraries in rural Kenya serving over 15,000 bright, eager learners every year. Last month Turk returned from his 50th trip to visit some of our 60 school partners, and he is more committed than ever to the impact of library books with better scores, bigger dreams, and brighter futures. 

For Turk's birthday, we worked with our latest literacy partner Start A Library Trust to fill the shelves of 5 new libraries that will serve an additional 1500 students this year.


Our goal of $15,000 was reached thanks to gifts large and small from supporters and book lovers around the world. 

We believe that libraries are a window to the past and a doorway to the future.


Every school needs one, because every child deserves the chance to read and to succeed.

Kenya Updates

Our team is back from Kenyan school visits! We had a great time reconnecting with our ground crew, checking in with school partners and cheering for donors as they cut ribbons on newly constructed classrooms.

Thanks to Jemu Mwenda Expeditions for the transportation support, and Mara Safari and Ol Pejeta Conservancy for the great partnership.

We are so grateful to have shared this experience with the Richards and McCollums; these families are integral to the work we do. It was wonderful to see them get to meet the communities they support and see the impact of their commitments.

Story Moja filled shelves at Muthuini Library and made it a very special day. We toured DKUT campus, met and congratulated our newest scholarship awardees! Check out The Nobelity Project Facebook page for more great footage from the 2023 School Tour.



we love our friends around here

The Nobelity Project is a proud ongoing supporter of local literacy organization, BookSpring. This summer we were happy to act as a sponsor for their annual BookSpring Fest! Below is a recap of the event hosted at their South Austin hub in May of 2023. Please visit to learn about the educational work they do for Central Texans.

Thanks again for making BookSpring Fest possible, it was a hit! At BookSpring Fest we had over 600 people in attendance, had over 30 special guests read aloud and perform, distributed over 870 books to children in our community, and had so many happy faces all around! Additionally, we were able to provide free carnival games, refreshments, face painters, balloon makers, covid vaccines, and a petting zoo to all the families in attendance so everyone (especially families that might not be able to afford to go to a festival otherwise) could enjoy celebrating reading!

We are beyond proud of all of the awardees in this scholarship initiative - especially these recent college grads, Gladwell and Peter! Gladwell is already teaching Geography with her BA in Education and Peter is passionate about his BS in Land Resource Planning & Management. Way to go!

Scholars excel at Dedan Kimathi!

And our latest round of scholarship recipients are already taking exams! These scholars lead the way on our new partnership with Dedan Kimathi University of Technology. Students received awards from The Nobelity Project for graduating at the top of their class. One student from each of our five partner high schools will be selected annually.

Thank you for an amazing night! 2022 marked a wrap on big gala-style events for us, but we are still gathering our Giving Circle for more intimate occasions. 
Thanks to all of our honorees, performers, attendees, volunteers and sponsors for many years of fun Feed The Peace memories. We are grateful for your generosity and belief in our work. Stay tuned for reports on the progress you make possible. 

Here's footage from our June 2021 Kenyan school visits. This is a tiny peek at decades of hard, but rewarding work.

The individual projects now number in the hundreds. Together we are making a difference for students around the world. 

Turn up the volume! Join the fun! Lift your hearts!

Since 2005, The Nobelity Project has worked with communities in need, primarily in rural Kenya, to deliver on our promise to bridge gaps in education. We invite you to be a part of these community's futures.  


Whether it's building new classrooms, preschools and libraries, supporting students through college, connecting kids around the globe, or providing for critical needs we hope these projects inspire you to #FeedThePeace.
