Wednes­day, the folks that Jill Urbach & her mom Kit­ty Sor­gen have been work­ing with are drop­ping by the island in between get­ting awards in Chica­go & LA…Jill tells me they’re amaz­ing & inspi­ra­tional. Here’s the scoop, from Jill:

Drs. Gladys and Ger­shon Mwiti of Nairo­bi, Kenya will be speak­ing at the Mullis Cen­ter Wednes­day, March 31 at 7:00 PM.  They will be dis­cussing the cur­rent state of the Masha­ka Quilt­ing Project which was start­ed last year by Kit­ty Sor­gen and Jill Urbach with lots of local sup­port.  The Mwitis will also dis­cuss future plans for Mashaka.

Drs. Gladys and Ger­shon Mwiti are the founders of Oasis Africa, a non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tion with a pur­pose and com­mit­ment to bring heal­ing to many hurt­ing com­mu­ni­ties in our world, and to build lead­er­ship com­mit­ted to integri­ty and account­abil­i­ty.  Dr. Gladys Mwiti is an inter­na­tion­al­ly-acclaimed speak­er.  Dr. Ger­shon Mwiti is a Lead­er­ship Con­sul­tant and CEO, Lead­er­ship Insti­tute of Kenya (LIKA) who has recent­ly been brought in to work with the Kenyan Parliament.
