Thursday: Talk on building girls' high school in Kenya

Margo McAuliffe of Menlo Park and the Rev. Daniel Kiriti of Kenya will talk about the creation of St. Francis Xavier High School in Naivasha, Kenya, at a 7:15 a.m. breakfast Thursday, Oct. 17, at the University Club in Palo Alto.

The school, built from the ground up by Kenyan locals, graduated its first class in 2010.

Ms. McAuliffe, former math teacher at Menlo-Atherton High School, is the founder of Kenya Help, a program that funded and launched the building program with the help of Father Kiriti.

Also speaking is Maya McAuliffe, 16, Ms. McAuliffe's granddaughter, who attended the Kenya high school last summer, living with the students.

The event is free, however, donations are welcome. Email Ms. McAuliffe at for reservations.
