Every month, the IAYG honours a classroom connected to the IAYG (including IAYG University Societies and IAYG-affiliated departments) that are going above and beyond in geographic education, focusing on geography’s ability to transform communities – inspiring students to use their newfound global understanding to bring about change.

For the month of July 2018, we honour Michael Ruoro Njogu and his class at Gathirimu Girls High School in Githunguri, Kiambu County, Kenya. Mr. Njogu and his class have worked with professors at Kenyatta University and the K.U. GIS Club (an IAYG University Society) to train students in GIS technology; the class has even used their understanding of GIS and geographic technology to map their school and create an app to better locate sites in the school community.
