    Kenya's unique approach to rape prevention empowers girls rather than telling them to avoid "risky" situations and teaches boys that rape is a crime & a choice and that they have the power to protect their female peers. AND IT'S WORKING (fabulously).

    Audrey Hepburn spent many years in Africa helping the helpless. Being a starving child in WWII herself, Audrey volunteered extensively with UNICEF to help others. Yes, she is an icon for her style but also for her compassion and humanitarian work.

My husband, Tom, and I moved to Somaliland nine years ago with our 2-year-old twins to work for a nongovernmental organization that aimed to serve the local population. @Rachel Jones
