RWI News Brief

Full steam ahead! Some developments are in the works for RWI and we are excited. RWI has been chosen as semifinalists in the Dell Social Innovation Competition. We were selected among 50 teams out of 700 teams! Next step is to update our business plan, and put together a video. If any of you know how to work with multi-media and communications, we could use your help!

Also our team has been selected to be a part of the International Development Design Summit, which will take place in Colorado this year. As the Kenya Country Representative for RWI, Isaac will have the opportunity to visit us here in Colorado and participate fully in the three week summit. We will collaborate with experienced people in design and development from all over the world.
Thanks for the support!
