Hello all! This is the first installation of my blog, which I will be maintaining throughout my summer internship. In just 2 weeks I will be heading to Nairobi, Kenya to work with the Kenyan Association of Women Business Owners (KAWBO). As a Vital Voices/Advocacy Project fellow I will be conducting a baseline survey developed by Vital Voices of KAWBO participants, as well as producing success story profiles, networking with media outlets, expanding the KAWBO website and maintaining this weekly blog.
I look forward to arriving in Kenya, meeting with my co-workers at KAWBO and spending the summer supporting their efforts to strengthen female business owners in Nairobi. Keep following my blog and I’ll keep you updated on my life and work in Kenya.
