Simon Okelo – Turning Orphanages Into Creative Hubs (Ignite Seattle 40)

In terms of dollars spent on foreign aid, the US is one of the most generous nations in the world. But in terms of damage done to overseas communities? We’re pretty high up there too.

Coming from Kenya, Ignite speaker Simon Okelo knows this well! When we think “how can we help,” we spend our money on what we think they need. So communities end up with an orphanage, when what they really needed was a place to bring their community together.

Join us on October 3 to hear about how Simon has made it his mission to turn disused buildings into creative hubs across Kenya. Tickets are on sale now!
