Kenya Stories on CNN!

This week, CNN International's Inside Africa featured an interview with producer/director Carol Pineau and clips from Kenya Stories:

Already we have received many positive responses to this story.

"I just saw a compelling piece on CNN International and cannot express how proud I am of these young Kenyan business owners....I would like to offer my support."

"Hopefully this is a discussion opened to have meaningful dialogue and solutions for the betterment and upliftment of all..."

"I saw the piece on CNN featuring 'Kenya Stories'... I was very moved by this story."
