Holiday Gift Ideas: JLab Headphones: #1 True Wireless Headphones under $100

This post is sponsored by Best Buy.

If you're like me you cannot live without headphones. I use them practically all day long. It's part habit, part practicality, and part comfort.

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. This morning we met with Lee Anthony Brudvig, the Deputy Chief of Mission for the United States Embassy in Nairobi. He stressed that in order to attain economic growth and a stable food supply, women would be the gatekeepers of Kenyan agriculture. Agriculutral programs also pave a way for economic growth and… Continue

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





We have driven through and walked through Kenyan slums on this ONE MOMS trip and honestly it has been life changing. It has been life changing not because people are living in abject poverty, but because I understand how people can continue to live in the slums and not question it.

Day 3: Hope in the Slums

 

Today we rode into the slums. Take that in for a moment. 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. There were people at every turn, some running around in the mud without any shoes. Trash was everywhere. It almost looked like a sparse landfill. There were no paved roads at all,…

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.

Our First Day in Kenya: Harsh Realities, Solid Improvements

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

In Kenya The Need is Great, Successes Abound

I have spent two days in Kenya now and I am constantly amazed by two things: how beautiful this country is and the welcoming kindness of everyone we've met here. I have always heard that Kenyans are some of the most generous of spirit in the world. Now I know it's unequivocally true.
