There's nothing better than a not-to-be-believed sunset, so the travel community at Trippy.com shared where they've seen the best ones on their travels. Here's where they go to see the sun go down!
In Kenya, Joan Otpi trains farmers to create fortified, nutrient-rich flour; in Pennsylvania, Janet Chambers launched a mentoring program for high school girls; and in El Salvador, Michelle Leach is giving youth a way to develop a local economy.
In Mark Kapchanga's view, the West, particularly media, really do not understand what the Chinese are doing in Africa. The West, he says, just doesn't have its priorities right in Africa, whereas Beijing's massive infrastructure spending across the continent is the kind of engagement that has a direct impact on people's lives.
It is evident that this girl, like so many other girls at Waa, sees the value of education. I first understood this while conducting an Agree-Disagree debate activity with a group of girls, age 13, at Waa.
