CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY, CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE -- How did you spend your summer?
“I interned at the Tiba Foundation as part of the communications team, and this summer we donated soap to the hospital in Ukwala, Kenya, to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. Following our volunteer spotlight on the soap project, I started working with our partner organization, the Matibabu Foundation Kenya (MFK), to highlight the impact of Matibabu Hospital as well as the Matibabu College of Health Sciences and Lifunga School for Girls on the local community. The immediate objective was to get a community member and staff from MFK to share their stories, which we plan on sharing at an annual gala next year.
“In addition to this project, I worked to start a group of young professionals in the Bay Area, as well as in Kenya, to network with each other as we continue to assist communities in need.”
