I just finished up at the Aga Khan Academy in Mombasa. It was great watching the kids progress during my time there. Many of them have put together some really nice crossing combinations, a few can do the pushup, and some have mastered complex wraps and rope releases. A small group of residential students are now training during their 6 a.m. exercise sessions.
One of the Academy students shattered the 30-second speed record set in Tanzania. It now stands at 60, making him the fastest speed jumper in East Africa. He's 9 years old.
I arrived in Nairobi last night, where I will be teaching with Carolina for Kibera (CFK). CFK was founded by Salim Mohamed, the late Tabitha Festo, and Rye Barcott, an MBA from Harvard. Here is a video of Rye with staff members in Kibera that will give you an idea of the challenges faced.
Thank you for all of your continued support. It means so much to these kids.
