Hillary and Ben Travel to Malawi! April 2, 2013 by jamiep
Being rewarded for good work in the community always brings feelings of both personal and communal contentment—and the perks are nice too! Recently, one of our partners, the Segal Family Foundation (SFF), held a photo contest called, “Together We Can: Improving Youth Outcomes Through Collaboration.” Carolina for Kibera’s submission stood out from the crowd and won 1st prize in the contest! (Here you can find out more about the contest and see our winning photo.)
SFF strives to develop and deliver reproductive health, food security, and youth engagement programs to communities primarily in East Africa. They partner with a wide variety of organizations (including CFK) and encourage international networking and collaboration among them. Fittingly, the winner’s reward included a trip for two to visit another SFF partner! At the beginning of February, Hillary, CFK’s Executive Director, and Ben, a program officer in our Sexual Reproductive Health Program, began their five-day trip to visit AGE Africa in Malawi. Check out their documentary-style blog post on SFF’s website to read about their travels and experience with AGE Africa!
