Kristen Maryn

Kristen Maryn (Hakijamii the Economics and Social Rights Centre): Kristen received her BS in Business Administration and BA in Sociology from the University of Arizona in 2007. Upon graduating, she traveled to Nigeria to work with a micro-finance program. After returning from Nigeria, Kristen worked in corporate management. At the time of her fellowship, Kristen was pursuing her JD at Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, with a focus on migration, conflict amelioration, and alternative dispute resolution. After her fellowship Kristen wrote: “This fellowship reiterated my goal of getting to a place where I do not need to sit back and wait for someone to help me in order to get things done. I really enjoyed being part of a network that was small enough that it felt like a family, but had a global reach.”



Kibera Paper Continued

15 Jul

As a quick addendum to the blog I wrote a few days ago, I was able to compile the videos I took of the card-making process.  So here are the women of Kibera Paper showing me how it’s done.

All I know is my sister and I never made anything out of recycled paper quite as nice as they do (no offense, Ash.).

Photos of my trip to Mukuru and an introduction to Beatrice to come soon!
