Caroline commented on Youth Educational Diplomacy for Global Leadership

Dr. Angwenyi, 

Great idea and one that I support fully. I think if Kenyan youth are given the opportunity to get involved in an educational diplomacy exchange, they can learn a great deal from their expereince and then transfer those skills back to Kenya. I look forward to working with you and being a part of your team.

Thanks for your comment. We are still looking for options to mobilize this idea. So I'd be happy to hear how your project is taking shape.

Caroline commented on Urban Food Hubs Solution

Hi Chioma, 

In addition to what our team have already stated, I would like to underscore the potential for this project to lift people out of poverty or out of the urban slums/temporary settlements. Part of the business model to make it possible to achieve this goal, is by employing the low income/urban settlers, they gain some for of equity in the system and once they put in their time and sweat, they not only gain transferrable technical skills but they also gain equity in which they continue to have profit share or even capped residual income after they have completed their employment assignment at the facility. This is all dependent on a profitable business model which we hope will create capacity to expand to other locations/regions/countries.
