Sam A

Sam A joined Community Classrooms Collaborative in 2014 as the In-Country Coordinator for Kenya. Sam A will work with, learn from and mentor villagers, using their existing knowledge and skills to develop a number of systems to strengthen the community’s needs, capacity and effectiveness. It is hoped that the collaboration will be a positive and valuable contribution, enhancing Community Classrooms Collaborative’s capacity to better facilitate local and international activities.

Sam A has a particular interest in environmental systems and treading lightly on Mother Earth. She is elated to be having the opportunity to be immersed within the strong culture of Kenya and getting lost in the maize and cassava fields within the Siaya County.

You can follow Sam A’s journey in our news updates.
