The Imani Project, a Portland-based non-profit, is a partnership between Americans and Africans in rural Kenya. Imani’s goal is to enable and empower Kenyan villagers to become educators, advocates, caregivers and HIV/AIDS activists in their own communities.

Marlene Anderson, a social worker from Portland, is Imani’s founder and Executive Director. We talked with Marlene and three Imani volunteers – Ann Picar, Annie Bennett, Ron “Wally” Walstrom.
