Since tomorrow is International Women’s Day, today we’re visiting with the Samburu women in the Samburu District of northern Kenya. When i visited this tribe (as with many tribes & villages throughout Africa) i was so impressed to see how the women work together to Get Things Done… for their children, for their husbands, for their communities… for their countries.
From managing water systems to schools to creative micro-enterprises to support their children, these tribal women inspire me. Maybe they don’t have the latest iPhone or TVs or even electricity in many places , but their ingenuity & leadership & Willingness To Do Something is something we can all learn from…

p.s. i love Kenyans! After moving to Tanzania (where i had never been before) i got into lots of trouble when i told my Tanzanian colleagues, “well, i figured if Tanzanians were half as nice as Ugandans & Kenyans, i will be OK…” To which my new colleagues replied, “We Tanzanians are TWICE AS NICE as Kenyans.” … well, after living 4 years there, i love Tanzanians, TOO! : )
