Women Enterprise at Dunga Beach in Kisumu, Kenya: Commercial Sex Workers #ONEMOMS



If there is one theme we're hearing a lot while we travel around Kenya, it's this: the future of Kenya specifically and Africa in general lies in the hands of women.

Day 4: Life in the Kenyan Slums for a Single Mom #ONEMOMS

Day 3: Hope in the Slums

If you have been born and bred in the United States or any other developing country it's likely you have never seen poverty like we witnessed today.

Me, Kenyan Kids, an iPad, and Angry Birds

20110726-061539.jpg



Today when we had a little time to spare before heading to Siaya District Hospital I had a chance to spend time with a few Kenyan children who had made their way to the porch where I was sitting. They had been given ONE armbands and were definitely looking for more goodies and were milling about. I thought how fun would it be to pull out my iPad and show them Angry Birds.

Today was a day filled with many hard truths that we had to face along with endless possibilities and improvements that are already happening in Kenya.



Our day started with a quick 30 minute flight from Nairobi to Kisumu, a sleepy town on the shores of Lake Victoria. We went to Kisumu to visit the KEMRI/CDC Research and Public Health Collaboration home-based HIV testing and… Continue
