"From your efforts my future shines a new light, and brighter."
PEI was founded by three remarkable
women who wanted to make a difference. Collectively their business, educational, international development
and philanthropic background helped to create what would become the Clay International Secondary School.
Dr.Debra Akre had worked temporarily in Kenya and was challenged by the hardships facing young people she met
there. She enlisted Jeanna King to visit the country with her to explore possibilities that would focus on
educating secondary school students.
Back home, they met Andrea (Andy) Clay whose previous travels to Kenya
had made a deep impression on her as well. When Andy and her husband Jim Clay became part of the vision,
Project Education Inc. was born and the foundation laid for the Clay International Secondary School.
