In October 2014, I accompanied a small group of widows to Nairobi, Kenya. We visited an organization that services widows and their children. The widows live in a slum called Kibera. It is a place where the families live in one room, on less than a dollar a day and have no running water. I was able to visit three of the widow’s homes in Kibera and learn first hand about their specific challenges. I hope to be able to return here. I wrote a piece, Unbounded Gratitude, which was published in Huffington Post, Maria Shriver.com and the Elephant Journal
Later in October, I attended a United Nations event in New York City with Lord Loomba. Lord Loomba was honored with a lifetime achievement award for his global work servicing widows and their children. I also wrote a piece for Huffington Post about Lord Loomba’s foundation.
