CMU alumna & Epic Change founder Stacey Monk, whose work has appeared in Mashable, the Huffington Post, Forbes.com, the Chronicle of Philanthropy and more, shares the story of her unique partnership and friendship with "Mama Lucy" Kamptoni, a Tanzanian woman who once sold chickens as the seed money to start a school in her village. Together, the pair has harnessed the power of social media to rally thousands of investors across the globe to build a locally-led school in Arusha, Tanzania that now serves over 500 children.
The panel includes two recent graduates of their seventh grade class, Leah and Gideon, children who were called the "Twitterkids of Tanzania" in the Huffington Post, and who left their country for the first time to participate in this talk and others scheduled across the US.
