Save the Children has a pretty nifty project going on (a beneficiary is pictured above) in northeastern Kenya that not only gets locally produced milk to malnourished children and pregnant/breastfeeding women, but also seeks to strengthen the region’s entire milk-production chain. I wrote about it while profiling Karl Frey, a Save technical advisor to the project who was raised by his Mennonite family on Lancaster County dairy farm. See, the global really is local.
