Although I am still in the United States and will not be physically there for another 3 weeks, my journey to Enoosaen, Kenya, started last week, when I finally met Karin Orr and Iain Guest, from the Advocacy Project, and Kakenya Ntaiya, the mastermind behind the Kakenya Center for Excellence. Finally meeting them in person was a great way to realize how real it is all becoming!
Spending time with them was also very helpful to have a better idea about what should be prioritized now, and how I can help the project during my time in Kenya. Listening to Kakenya talk about KCE firsthand was very stimulating, and her passion and commitment to the school and to the girls in her community shines through.
I am also looking forward to meeting Charlotte in person, and really glad I will be able to help her with the great work she has already done around KCE. Charlotte, this fellow Muzungu will be there soon enough!
