WHO WE ARE

Resources for Education Advancement and Development is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization led by Executive Director Kayli Stollak.

In 2009, after graduating from New York University, Kayli Stollak decided to take some time to dedicate herself to a worthy project. In Nairobi, Kayli was struck by the educational inequity that the children face and the horrible cycle of poverty that it creates. This experience inspired Kayli to form R.E.A.D. in order to make a difference for these children by providing for their educational needs. Education is a basic human need that we should all have the right to. It is the tool that transforms societies and creates the power of change and progress.

Kayli travels to Kenya throughout the year to purchase textbooks and school supplies for the orphaned schoolchildren, set up literacy clubs in the homes, and award students with R.E.A.D. scholarships for university.
