News from CPA-partner in Kenya, june 2021.

Dr. Rachel Lindoewood:

Great to access your website and see the transition from the scottish charity. We have just published our third paper updating the work in Kenya, the 2nd relating to the workshop in Nyahururu which Jean ran and I supported, and the third regarding the APT research study. I will email the links. We also are setting up a small Welsh Based Charity APT for Social Development to support ongoing work in Kenya so it would be good to keep our links going.
