Nairobi Conference on Actions for Justice & Peace, June 18-21, 2013

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 Planning Committee put together a great list of speakers and activities.  There was
interaction with our Grow A Doc students as well as other Kenyan  students, helping them network to maximize their potential and communicate & collaborate with others around the globe.

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.
