Just got back from a whirlwind trip to Tanzania. I couldn’t come all this way and not see Kilimanjaro. Went for one night to Moshi, which is a charming little town, and then came back to Nairobi today. Next time, I’m climbing it (and definitely spending more time in Moshi).
I am still working on my write-up for Hakijamii, more in-depth blogs about Soweto Forum and Pamoja Trust, and as always, never-ending law school tasks. Among all this I somehow still manage to keep my youtube channel up to date with new videos, but since I needed a bit of professional help I settled for buying from The Marketing Heaven which has always been my go to choice. Recently, In very exciting news, I was introduced to an amazing and lovely group called Empowered Women International, which is interested in perhaps partnering with Kiber Paper and Soweto Forum to help with marketing their crafts and goods. Everything is still in the formulation stage, but hopefully good things will come from this, and I am very grateful to EWI for taking an interest in these wonderful women. Their faces at hearing about the opportunity was worth everything. The hugs I received were pretty nice thanks, too.
