Dear CHS family,
I became acquainted with Kiwimbi a few years ago through a college friend, Carol, and I was just elected to the Board of Trustees of Kiwimbi International. Kiwimbi's mission statement is very powerful and it spoke to me personally because I believe in my heart that education is so important to solving conflict and suffering. The mission statement:
"We see a world where all people are empowered through education to enrich their lives and reach their fullest potential. To accomplish this vision, our mission is to partner with underserved communities worldwide to create educational opportunities through locally run learning centers." Our current efforts are focused in Amagoro, Busia County, a town in Western Kenya.
I invite the CHS community to learn more about Kiwimbi and the efforts of Kiwimbi International, which provides professional and financial support to the all-Kenyan Kiwimbi Kenya organization, by attending the Kiwimbi Karamu event on Friday evening, October 20th at the Morris Museum. It will be a lovely evening - African dancing and drumming, great Kenyan food, open bar, meeting a few of the Kiwimbi Kenya staff, and an opportunity to hear our guest speaker, Mukoma Wa Ngugi, noted author and scholar.

I am available to answer any questions either in person or via my email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
