Country: Kenya

Kenya is probably one of the African countries most familiar to Americans. Straddling the Equator, it is 224,963 square miles (582,650 sq km) in size, slightly larger than France; slighly smaller than Texas. Its geography varies from the temperate highlands to the tropical coast to the arid north. We explore various aspects of the Kenyan experience in this project - girls's football in Kilifi, the intersection of climate and conflict in Isiola, the first internet meme, educational reform and other topics. Join us on this journey.
