Along with Loyola University Chicago and Catholic University of East Africa, HARAMBEE co-sponsored a 4-day conference on Promoting Justice and Peace in June, 2013. Conference Website.
The itinerary included a 2= week stay, reasonably priced accommodations at a guest house near CUEA, day trips to several HARAMBEE project sites and universities, and some special fun activities: visit to Karen Blixen's farm and the National Wildlife Park near Nairobi.
With increasing globalization, Kenya really doesn't seem so far away, although while there it can seem like another planet! This was a life-altering experience and a great chance to see the people helped through HARAMBEE.
