Wellspring Advisors, Program Officer for International Child Rights Program.
I call Kenya home and currently live in Washington, DC.
After working there and other African countries for many years with communities and in academia I got a better understanding of their resilience and determination and how we often fail to incorporate this in our attempts to bring change. I realized firsthand how we need to link our resources with theirs to bring the change that they desire. It is my hope that AiD will provide this link and add their resources and build on what already exists and add value. I believe that the diaspora needs Africa as much as Africa needs the diaspora and AiD has a great opportunity to create a mechanism that will make Africans drivers of Africa’s transformation. There is no better time than now and AiD is the way.
