Abstract

For this project, I decided to look into the possibility of using telepractice as a method for providing speech and language services to people in remote areas of Kenya. For information and experience regarding working in Kenya with Kenyan people, I partnered with Dr. Debra Akre, the founder of Tembo Trading Education Project (TTEP). TTEP is a non-profit organization based in Bellingham, WA that has founded self-sustaining schools and businesses in Kenya. TTEP also promotes critical-thinking based education and actively works to improve critical- thinking skills in the children they interact with.
