Gemma Sisia’s Tanzanian story – The School of St Jude

I came across the story of Gemma Sisia, founder of the School of St Jude in Arusha, Tanzania, the other day. It struck a chord with me, because I spent a week painting walls at Saint Monica’s, a school just outside Nairobi that my friend Racquel Turner runs. (see my the blog posts here, here, and here).

You can watch Gemma on ABC’s ‘Australian Story’ here:

I love learning more about individuals doing such fantastic work. Thank you to Gemma and staff/volunteers for making the world a better place.

The Power of Story

I just watched Jodi Ettenberg’s keynote from TBEX 2015.

If you’re a travel blogger, or simply intrigued with storytelling, you ought to give it 40 minutes of your time.

Now, feel free to go capture and tell amazing stories.

A Quote from Kiva’s Premal Shah at SOCAP

I simply love this quote from Premal Shah at Kiva.org

If everything you do, you do for yourself, then when you die it all disappears. If everything you do, you do for others, it all lives on.

You can see the entire “What is Literally Worth Dying For?” panel that took place at SOCAP 2013, embedded below:

PS: If you’re a kiva and/or microfinance fan, we’d love to help connect you with like-minded people.
