Muanzo Mpya Global Webinar Series

 

On April 23rd, 2021, Muanzo Mpya hosted its first webinar, entitled Navigating the Duality of Kibera and the US: Life at Boarding School. This webinar, moderated by CFO Laurel Caruso, highlighted the stories of four of our Kiberan Rafikis (more information about our Rafiki program can be found in the Looking Forward section), Marion Adhiambo, Martha Achieng Odhiambo, Joice Achieng Odongo, and Marion Achieng Ouma. Listeners gained insight into the feelings of girls who have learned to balance living in two different cultures, and had the opportunity to interact with the girls through asking questions at the end.
