Kate’s Kenya Journal – Backstage Pass

Maina Street Scene It is a privilege to be here.  If we can help one person be more successful – and success can be as little as making $100 a month – then they can have an easier life and teach another 10 people – we can help change entire communities.

I hope the people in these villages, who may be seeing Mzungu (white people) for the first time, see us as friends and helpers.

I have never had so much fun working so hard.   I get to see places that few outsiders get to see.  And traveling with the locals – we are welcomed and don’t mind the stares and timid handshakes of the little ones brave enough to come close.  The entrepreneurs are hungry for improvement and I sometimes can’t sleep because I am thinking of how to help make these businesses stronger.
