Nairobi Partner Meetings

This morning I met with Linus, Marylyne and Brenda, of Jane Goodall's Roots and Shoots -- to debrief about the Cura Secondary School Real Impact Farm field trip they coordinated, as well as potential future plans. Our conversation ranged from agribusiness, to kitchen gardens, to organic farming, to secondary school curriculum, to job training and mentoring... big ideas in the works!

After a stroll down Ngong Road, I then met with Dominic from Kenya Education Fund... and received the excellent news that one of the Cura Secondary School student applicants was accepted into KEF's scholarship program! I'm thrilled!

Yet to go today... an afternoon meeting with Pip from Flying Kites -- to talk about the LaunchPad program they're implementing to help their students transition from secondary school into their adult lives. Such meaningful work going on all around here in Nairobi, and so many opportunities for us to network for the benefit of the projects we're passionate about!
