MAP: From Columbia to Kenya

February 8, 2012 | 3:50 p.m. CST

CLARIFICATION: Lake Victoria is located on Kenya’s western border. A previous version of this map omitted the lake.

In 2011, Billy Jivetti, an MU doctoral student in rural sociology, founded Pathways Africa, an organization that works to improve health care access and education in his native western Kenya. The organization has been able to complete the first floor of the Fellbaum Community Health Centre Emmaus, located in Emmaus, Kenya, but will rely on fundraising and grants to complete the structure.
