Soldier of good fortune
‘Talent is universal; opportunity is not’. Rye Barcott, a social entrepreneur and former US Marine, has made this adage the motto of Carolina for Kibera (CFK), a development organisation that he co-founded in Africa’s largest slum in Nairobi, Kenya. He dropped by Matter&Co to share his story of how his donation of $26 to Tabitha, an HIV-positive widow with a plan and determination, has been transformed, 10 years on, into an organisation that provides medical treatment over 45,000 people each year.
