Trying to change the world? Learn about what's important to the people you want to help http://buff.ly/1lrHWgi
Every time I step off the plane in Nairobi, Kenya, I make a commitment to myself to have conversations designed to test my assumptions about this place that I've been working for the last decade. Why is this something good? Because what's important to me may not be important to the very women that I am trying to help.
