Join Minnesota International Nonprofit Network (MINN) for a Talk and Tour of Organic Health Response (OHR) to get an in-depth look at the organization in a small group setting. The agenda includes an overview of the organization by Richard Magerenge, Co-Founder and Kenya Country Director, and Kelsi Hines, Executive Director, as well as a private tour of their space at Impact Hub MSP. Register here on the MINN Eventbrite invitation!
Richard Magerenge is a Co-Founder and current Kenya Country Director of OHR. Richard will be sharing his inspiring story of growing up on Mfangano Island, Kenya, losing both of his parents to HIV/AIDS, becoming a trusted community leader, getting his family farm registered on the World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms registry, and ultimately co-founding OHR with Chas Salmen who was a visiting medical student exploring sources of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Western Kenya. OHR has now become a truly transformative community-led health and sustainability organization that serves Mfangano communities in Kenya. Click here to read Richard’s full story.
*The MINN Talk and Tour (T&T) is an opportunity for MINN members to gain first-hand knowledge of the workings of international NGOs in the state. The T&T agenda is simple. Employees of an international NGO offer a private tour of their facility and then field questions about their organization’s work and their office culture. While MINN T&Ts are free and open to MINN Members, space is limited, and registration is required. Please consider joining the hundreds of international professionals who already have a MINN membership. Click here to join. If you have questions regarding your membership write us at membership [at] minnesotangos [dot] org.
There will be a networking opportunity following the Talk and Tour at Modist Brewing starting at 7pm. The Modist Brewing event is open to all who would like to network with the MINN community and OHR staff!
