Hello (Hujambo) from Toronto, Canada!

Happy summer!

I am officially home after an outstanding three months in the field in Kenya...

Thanks to your support I was able to provide personalized consultations to thirty-five Kenyan nonprofit partners in thirteen different counties across Kenya, discussing how to leverage GlobalGiving’s leading platform to build fundraising capacity, strengthen organizational strategies, attract more donors, and accelerate impact through our online learning tools.

Our nonprofit partners on the ground are tackling a plethora of challenges across sectors in Kenya. From interacting with the world’s last two northern white rhinos on Ol Pejeta’s Conservancy, to assisting Step Up 4 Autism with their occupational therapy sessions, to listening to music produced by Turning Tables’ youth beneficiaries from the slums - every visit left me feeling inspired, educated, and driven to continue my work in the social impact sphere. 

In addition to site visits, I was additionally able to facilitate six online fundraising workshops across the country, educating and building relationships with 170 prospective nonprofit partners.

I created a short video to summarize my time in the field, if you’d like to watch it click here

Last week I presented my insights to the GlobalGiving U.S. HQ team, sharing country sector trends, partner challenges, and recommendations on how to enhance our support of our Kenyan partners and advance the social impact sector on both a national and global scale. 

Based on the feedback we’ve received from those nonprofit partners I visited, time was very well spent! We’ve seen partners have increases in their donation activity, add new projects to our platform, and restrategize around their approach to management and fundraising.

Tremendous thanks again, without your support none of this would’ve been possible! 


I am off to Los Angeles this fall to complete my Masters in Social Entrepreneurship at USC Marshall School of Business. If you’d like to learn more about the 35 organizations I visited, my time in the field, or otherwise keep in touch, please feel free to reach out to my personal email:

Best wishes,
