The seminar will feature Kennedy Odede ’12.
Kennedy Odede ’12 was born and raised in the Kibera slum of Nairobi, Kenya—the largest slum in Africa and second largest in the world. The first time Kennedy ever had extra money, 20 cents in 2005, he bought a soccer ball and started SHOFCO-Kenya, the first organization in Kibera founded and run by slum residents. Kennedy will share his story of growing up in Kibera how his experience at Wesleyan has transformed his organization into an internationally recognized non-profit: Shining Hope for Communities. There will be a short movie about the Kibera School for Girls, the school that Shining Hope founded in 2009, and information about the Johanna Justing-Jinich Memorial Clinic, a community drive health center opening this year that focuses on women’s healthcare.
