Our former intern, University of South Carolina graduate, Cannon King was in Kibwezi, Kenya during the summer of 2014. He shared some of his thoughts and observations as he conducted our progress out of poverty interviews with existing groups, performed field visits of new groups, and experienced just a little bit of every day life in Kibwezi!
