August 2015 Megan Light and Nicole Janes carried out a community health worker training and assessment in conjunction with the Ministry of Health in Kajiado North Sub-County as part of their Emory University MPH practicum. They worked under the direction of PATHWAYS Vice-President in Kenya, Dr. Mbaabu Mathiu. Pictured from left to right are Megan Light, Dr. Mathiu, His Wife Joy Mbaabu and Nicole Janes). Catherine Kaimenyi, the Student Coordinator of PATHWAYS Leadership for Progress remarked, “The students are so enthusiastic to learn new things and bonded with the scholars so well. This exchange emerged to be so exciting and we look forward to more of such. I attended their training today and they are amazing trainers, very sociable and likable – they connected so well with the trainees. I listened to the income generation activity training in particular which was very simplified to meet the needs of the learners.” It was very beneficial to have Megan and Nicole provide assistance to the Ministry of Health as well as interact with the PATHWAYS scholars.
