From the Kenya Side of My Life September 26, 2011

Filed under: Africa,Environment,Kenya — Janet @ 9:56 pm

My blog entry for today is from the Kenya side of my life.  Namely the time now 20+ years ago when we were  living in Nairobi and were very involved with activities at UNCHS and UNEP and the U.S. Library of Congress.

  this photo is from the BBC.  Wangari Maathai is receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 2004.  She was the first African woman to be honored in this way.  Sadly she has now died, at the age of 71, undergoing treatment for cancer.  A strong activist and a woman to be much admired.
