Summer Sanders: Busy Mom and Member of Team Kellogg's

 

Most people probably don’t know that the United States is one of the only countries in the world that does not fund its Olympic team save its Paralympic team. I didn’t realize that either until I interviewed swimming legend Summer Sanders this week. Sanders, who won an impressive four medals in the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games…

Women Enterprise at Dunga Beach in Kisumu, Kenya: Commercial Sex Workers #ONEMOMS



If there is one theme we're hearing a lot while we travel around Kenya, it's this: the future of Kenya specifically and Africa in general lies in the hands of women. This morning we met with Lee Anthony Brudvig, the Deputy Chief of Mission for the United States Embassy in Nairobi.

Day 4: Life in the Kenyan Slums for a Single Mom #ONEMOMS





We have driven through and walked through Kenyan slums on this ONE MOMS trip and honestly it has been life changing. It has been life changing not because people are living in abject poverty, but because I understand how people can continue to live in the slums and not question it.

Day 3: Hope in the Slums

 

Today we rode into the slums. Take that in for a moment. If you have been born and bred in the United States or any other developing country it's likely you have never seen poverty like we witnessed today. There were people at every turn, some running around in the mud without any shoes. Trash was everywhere. It almost looked like a sparse landfill. There were no paved roads at all,…

Me, Kenyan Kids, an iPad, and Angry Birds

20110726-061539.jpg



Today when we had a little time to spare before heading to Siaya District Hospital I had a chance to spend time with a few Kenyan children who had made their way to the porch where I was sitting. They had been given ONE armbands and were definitely looking for more goodies and were milling about. I thought how fun would it be to pull out my iPad and show them Angry Birds. Who doesn't… Continue
