Guests worked in small groups to analyze development scenarios from the Mombasa area that were modeled after real life examples of communities and issues that AKF projects face everyday.

Guest speakers included, Sally Mullei-Lau, Director of Special Programmes at Education for Marginalized Children in Kenya and Masoud Ali, Programme Director of the Madrasa Resource Centre, Kenya.


Summer Service opportunities were posted with the following AKF projects: Community Health Department (CHD); the Coastal Rural Support Programme (CRSP); Education for Marginalized Children in Kenya (EMACK); the Madrasa Resource Centre, Kenya (MRC,K); and the Kenya School Improvement Programme (KENSIP).
