Spring 2013 Calendar

"Transforming Lives: Community-Based Development in Kenya"
Janet Mumo, above, is the founder and director of southeastern Kenya’s Kitui Development Center (KDC). Building leadership is at the core of KDC initiatives in this region, which often suffers from severe drought and famine: having enough food to eat is a daily challenge. In just one KDC program, Mumo works with 1,753 women who feed 7,400 children.
