KENYA - Spring 2018
Called by some archaeologists the 'cradle of humanity,' today's Kenya has been said to be located where some of the world's first human beings ever stood upright. Tools used by humans have been found there dating back to c 3.3 million BC revealing sophistication and civilization of millennia past.
Today, Kenya remains a country rich in resources and natural wealth. Poor management and leadership however, partnered with weak political institutions and the legacy of colonialism have left a large majority of the country's 48.5 million in poverty and with minimal options.
This Spring and Summer, GUD will be traveling to Kenya to work on constructing programs to support sustainable design, community and educational development in the country.
At GUD, we seek to improve the standard of living throughout the Black global population.Through these programs, we intend to contribute in ways that lead to incremental change and sustained development on the continent and in the diaspora.
