As a founding Board Member of Shining HOpe for Community, I cannot stop talking about this amazing organization. Organized around the Kibera School for Girls, a free, topnotch educational experience for girls from ultrapoor peri-urban families in Kibera, Kenya, the school has become a hub for community transformation. The clinic serves the local population and has built trust and confidence, expanding capacity. The biosanitation and water point have provided clean water and hygienic latrines, which use cutting edge tech to produce methane. The playground is a first in this impoverished shantytown. Kennedy Odede is a role-model par excellance. But most of all what this fantastic project produces in prodigious amounts is: HOPE! The rest happens!
