At lunch today, I came across this pamphlet for Kipepeo, a company that employs impoverished women in Kibera, Kenya to create hand-made greeting cards and then sell them all over the world.

How can we be better storytellers? How can we as OpenIDEO and as individuals bring these stories out into the world?
