Minneapolis is a sister city to Eldoret, Kenya. As such, our second stop on our global tour was to various locations around Kenya! We visited the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Nanyuki and got to meet the last two northern white rhinos and hear more about the organization’s conservation efforts. We learned about the animals in the Maasai Mara National Reserve. To close out this virtual voyage, we enjoyed a delicious Kenyan meal brought to us by Chef Raphael out of Nairobi!

We kicked off this series exploring and participating in various events throughout Mexico. We discovered the cultural, artistic, and natural history museums in Querétaro. We delved into a five-day festival featuring Mexican artists in the realms of theater, music, opera, and the arts, and closed out this session tuning in to the amazing percussion group, Tambuco.

Since 2016, Project Success has taken an annual trip to Washington, DC to tour Howard University and visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC). In 2019, the trip was canceled due to COVID-19 — so we worked with our incredible partners to create virtual experiences for you to explore Washington, DC from your own home. Enjoy!
