Blogging Mommas in Kenya

African women are leading a movement. They are the driving force behind Africa's economy, and mothers in particular have an enormous impact on the future of Africa.  Therefore, it is appropriate that ONE has recruited 10 mom bloggers, including my Facebook friend Shayne Moore (author of the Global Soccer Mom blog), to travel to Kenya and write about their experiences.

The campaign is called It Takes Only ONE Mom
ONE Week" is a weeklong social media event following 10 bloggers making their way through Kenya with ONE from July 25th-30th to see what life is really like for moms in the developing world. While in Kenya, the 10 bloggers will be checking in regularly with accounts of what they're seeing and hearing, as well as daily actions tied to their trips and access to experts who can explain the key issues these women will see firsthand. So join us! Get educated, engaged, and activated, and use your voice on behalf of the world's poorest. It just takes ONE mom. 
 Stay tuned for updates.
