Binti Girls Paint Mural and Take Field Trip to Undugu Girls Center

The Binti Pamoja Center has been busy this summer; the girls are taking lessons in creative writing, learning Spanish, going on field trips, and even salsa dancing! CFK Summer Fellow Laura Williamson (a senior at the University of North Carolina) has just returned from working with the girls in Kibera and sent us the attached photos.

Binti members took on a new project to beautify the CFK offices by designing, sketching and then painting a mural inside the CFK meeting hall. Through this project, not only have the girls left their mark on CFK, but it was also another exercise in teamwork and cooperation to acheive their creative vision.

Later, Binti members took a field trip to the Undugu Girls Center where our peer educators engaged the Undugu youth in discussions about reproductive health and other important social and development issues. The Binti girls also distributed the latest issue of their newsletter, Tunanego (Let's Talk).
