Three years ago, while visiting Malawi, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell noticed that children were lacking one of the fundamentals of the schoolhouse experience: chairs and desks. So he partnered with UNICEF to start K.I.N.D.: Kids in Need of Desks. The program raises money to build desks and chairs for rural schools in Malawi. In just three years, the K.I.N.D. Fund has raised more than $5 million. Watch the video below to hear Lawrence O’Donnell speak about K.I.N.D. and announce an exciting new phase of the program, which will give all children in Malawi an equal chance at an education.
