Meri visits HNP Kenya's trainees in Kibera slum, Kenya

I was surrounded by a ring of determined faces. Some of the management trainees of the Human Needs Project were giving me a tour of their home—the slum of Kibera, in Nairobi, Kenya—and I asked them how HNP’s center would help their community.

Meet HNP's Executive Director, Meri McCoy Thompson!

With 25 years of nonprofit management experience, I am delighted to join the Human Needs Project as the new Executive Director.   If you have followed this amazing venture, you know it is filled with many moving parts.  It will be my job to ensure all those parts keep moving in the right direction, and that we have the funds needed pursue the big vision.
