The Kibera School for Girls

In the summer of 2010, I took the opportunity to visit and support the Kibera School for Girls in Kibera, Kenya. There I met with the school’s founders Kennedy Odede and Jessica Posner, as well as Leah Lucid and Arielle Tolman (former Intro Bio students of mine), all of whom were Wesleyan students.
