President Pasquerella makes fifth trip to Kenya

August 8, 2012

This summer, for the fifth consecutive year, President Lynn Pasquerella traveled to Kenya with a team of like-minded academics who have made it their mission to find and implement solutions to the East African country’s problems of food insecurity, poverty, and disease.

This is Pres. Pasquerella's final year working on the project, which she first became involved with while working at the University of Rhode Island. As the request of the University's president, Pasquerella took over an initiative to support an alum working on clean-water solutions for Coca-Cola Africa.

This year, Pres. Pasquerella and her team worked with local communities to support youth empowerment and business initiatives. The group visited the towns of Kisii and Kisumu.

President Pasquerella narrates the following photo gallery of photos taken by her husband, John Kuchle.
