Jambo Friends!

It has been one week since I returned from Nairobi where I trained 4 TB ACTION Group staff members in the methodology and implementation of TB Photovoice.  During our 4 day training I witnessed their transformation as they took photos in their community and shared them with the group a deep, personal level.  These photos and the stories behind why they took these pictures truly illustrated how they perceive their community and their hopes for TB prevention and treatment.  The trainees began to see the power behind documenting their own feelings and perceptions, which they will faciliate with two groups in Nakuru.  Their creativity in their photos, the metaphors they shared were profound.  The power to move into action was palpable!  I know they are ready to encourage the Nakuru groups to find their voices and share their perspectives.

Last year at this time, training a new group in Kenya was a lofty goal for our small but determined TB Photovoice organization.  Thanks to your support and encouragement, the Kenyan group is trained and ready to take the steps necessary to amplify the voices of persons impacted by tuberculosis.  We are looking forward to sharing their progress with you as well as setting our sights creating new sites, while supporting our existing partners.

Thank you for being part of our TB Photovoice family.

In gratitude,
