CFW outreach event to prevent HIV and water-borne disease

CFW--HIV Prevention
CFW--HIV Prevention

This summer, I and our new VP of Development (Jefferson Lee) attended a CFW outreach event in Central Kenya. At the event, a CFW franchisee stood before a women’s tree-growing group and presented information on preventing HIV and waterborne disease. The women received this information gratefully and were very hospitable to us. At the end of the event, they gave us (the visitors) two dozen ears of corn and a large stem of bananas, as tokens of their hospitality. It was a privilege to meet these Kenyan women and to be present while CFW’s preventive messages were being so warmly received. This sort of education is inexpensive and yet is part of the way CFW saves lives in Africa; last year CFW franchisees reached over 190,000 people through outreach activities like this. I’ve uploaded two photos of this event.
