COLUMBIA — Sharon Kinden of Columbia kept her promise to donate an inheritance from an uncle to Pathways Africa, a nonprofit organization started by Billy Jivetti, an MU doctoral student in rural sociology. He started the organization to bring health care to his rural village in Kenya. Now, with Kinden's help, the Fellbaum Community Health Centre Emmaus is under construction.
