    ... we could do a walking safari. This was one of the most amazing and exciting things I have ever done. I was literally 10 feet away from a giraffe. And a zebra.

I explained that I felt the government is corrupted and the poverty in Kenya is significant at 46%. I explained that employment and education are key, but finding the funding for these in a corrupted government is a uphill battle. I gave an example of generated employment such as having sewing machines for women and men ...

    ... tomorrow to the homes that we weren’t able to get to today.

    In thinking about formal and informal protections, I’ve realized that Kenya as a whole seems to be significantly lacking in the formal protection arena. In the US we have a safety net system and our government provides programs and services for people in need. In Kenya, this is not the case.
