Ye! Voices

Oct 21, 2016

Here at Ye! We have a huge network of entrepreneurs, who are always involved in exciting events, are breaking new boundaries every week and who often have some wisdom or wit to share! We thought we’d collect a few thoughts, highlights and anecdotes from our community for your entertainment. Have a good Friday!

  • The Kairos Ladies Network, an initiative which educates girls and women about agribusiness in Nigeria, started by Ye! Member Christabell Afrane, took part in USAID’s Day of the Girl Child Expo which took place in Accra on 11 October to commemorate the International Day of the Girl Child. Read more about the event on the Kairos Ladies Network blog.Screen Shot 2016-10-21 at 2.20.38 PM.pngThe Kairos Ladies Network team at the Day of the Girl Child Expo

  • Mazingira Safi Initiative, an initiative started by our Ye! Blog contributor, Purity Wanjohi, is hosting a litter cleanup tomorrow in Nairobi, Kenya! We think it’s great to be reminder that people from all over the world are taking time to do some good for the environment.
