Hi Everyone!

Hope the weather is as wonderfully "spring-y" as it is here in Nashville. Here for some fun updates:

  • Watch the new video in Rutooro (subtitled in English) about hand-washing for children at Kasiisi schools (made by Abigail Schoenberg and Koojo Mathew):
  • Check out FEBRUARY on this calendar and read the blurb! 
  • Minute 1:28 of this video:
  • Kasiisi Cafe, an annual event at Vanderbilt University raised over $800 in two hours. The event featured live music by Vanderbilt students and was put on by the Vanderbilt college chapter of Kasiisi Project. Special thanks to Emily Vieth and Elizabeth Garner for their hard work making the event happen this year! This money will continue to support our secondary school scholar. (If you are interested in supporting a student through his/her secondary school, visit
  • Nurse Lucy is doing well! Elizabeth Ross reports that she is still visiting the schools regularly, distributing pads, and teaching girls about their health! More to come about this later.
  • Read the Kasiisi Blog to find out more about what the entire organization is doing:

And on a personal note... I graduate from Vanderbilt in four weeks (May 13) and I would love to see if we can raise $100,000 by then!! Only $6,901 to go...

As always, thanks for your continued support and please don't hesitate to email me with questions or comments.
