Midwestern Wanderer Goes to Kenya

Midwestern Girl in Kenya, Summer 2016

After decades of unfulfilled wanderlust, I’m finally getting to fulfill my dream of traveling abroad thanks to the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, the Master in Development Practice field experience, and the University of Minnesota’s Human Rights Program.  I will be in Kenya from May 29th-August 24th researching revenue streams in Kenya’s devolved government system with a team of four other students from Humphrey in conjunction with the International Center for Policy and Conflict (ICPC) as well as working with the Mama Ada Foundation and the community they work with in the Rift Valley.
