February Virtual Program Meeting

February 3, 2021,  7:00 PM

Program meeting with guest speaker Dr. Kakenya Ntaiya, 2013 CNN Hero, 2018 Aspen Ideas Festival scholar, and 2019 Obama Foundation Africa Leader.

Kakenya Ntaiya was set to follow the traditional path of Maasai girls in Kenya -- to assume the role of a young wife. But she had a different plan. She not only convinced her father to continue high school, but she negotiated with village elders to attend college in the U.S. Later Ntaiya returned to her village to establish a school for girls. The Kakenya Center for Excellence started in 2009 with 32 students, and focuses on academics, leadership and female empowerment.
