🍃LIFE UPDATE 🍃
Ah, @instagram fam, I'm writing to you because you are part of the large, multi-continental tribe that has mentored, shaped, and supported me throughout the years. I have an exciting update to share.
@katpattillo and I are co-founding an initiative called Metis Fund; metis is what the Greeks called wisdom from working in a specific, local context. Our Fund will invest in African leaders with metis. Through coaching, communities of practice, and connections to capital and talent, we aim to accelerate education reform in Kenya, and across the continent. You can learn more about our model at www.metisfund.org.
Additionally, to support program design at Metis, I've accepted a Fulbright to learn from similar models in India. From January 2018, I'll be based in Mumbai/Pune, before returning to spend the next few years in Nairobi.
Please send me your suggestions for amazing educators (and photographers!) in India, and best wishes as I finish up my last few days at Dignitas before heading to the states to learn from similar orgs & to fundraise. It takes a village to do anything meaningful, and I'm grateful you're in mine. x @stickylittleleaves 🌱
