Great Day with TYSA

I spent an amazing day today with Francis Gichuki and his team. They were having a "baraza" (community meeting) complete with village elders, 200+ school kids, many volunteers, and other folks. There was a soccer tournament, volleyball, basketball, and plenty of music. TYSA also gave all attendees the opportunity to tell a story for GlobalGiving's storytelling project, and we left with over 500 stories from community members. These stories sometimes featured the work that TYSA does, sometimes they just featured something that happened in a community. I'm very excited to take this true beneficiary feedback and add it to the growing number of stories we've received from people all over Kenya. Many thanks to Francis and the TYSA team for a great day.
