Putting People at the Center of Regional Development
Hannah Nyokabi Kaniaru makes a living selling fruit at the City Market in Nairobi, Kenya. In neighboring Uganda, Thomas Wanyika Maembe spends his days promoting sustainable fishing practices on Lake Victoria. And in Tanzania, Chris Maina Peter splits his time, teaching law in Dar es Salaam and helping to oversee a legal aid center in Zanzibar. Not long ago, all three of them had a unique opportunity to share their thoughts on the East African Community (EAC), a resurgent effort to bring their countries closer together economically, socially, and politically.
