The Fred Outa Foundation is the proud recipient of a humanitarian award from the Kenyan Government. In 2019 board members Joli and Ruben Fridman along with their daughter Maya were honored in a televised ceremony recognizing the foundation’s work to help vulnerable students in Kenya.
Sister School in Kenya
In 2005, Northbrook School District 28 adopted Spurgeon’s Academy as their sister school. Northbrook students were also recognized in the 2019 Kenyan Government award for their dedication to helping their sister school. Northbrook students support Spurgeon’s Academy through a letter-writing program, donation of school supplies and an annual fundraiser called Family Fun Day. This year’s event is at Rockin’ Jump Trampoline Park in Buffalo Grove, IL on Monday, January 20th from 1:00-5:00pm.
