Nicholas D. Kristof is a New York Times journalist who recently visited Kenya, I think primarily to report on the Dadaab Refugee Camp (where Kristoffer is right now, actually). It is the largest refugee camp in the world and receives hundreds of Somalis everyday. But today his column is about the challenges faced by Kenyan women (and probably many other African women, as well) and the story of one woman's way out of poverty. It is an inspiring story.
Kenya has been in the news a lot lately, for two very sad reasons as I wrote about before, so it is nice to find a story of hope in the mix as well.
