Altruistic Entrepreneurship: Nurturing Positivity and Creativity
Please join us for a conversation with Jerri and Hanna Kemble as Farrha Khan delves into how their work in Kenya with children in schools, and women in the villages helped keep scores of Kenyan villagers healthy (and out of jail.)
Jerri Kemble is a long-time denter who has served as a public school educator for 37 years. Her roles include that of teacher, counselor, principal and superintendent. Due to her achievements, Jerri has been invited to the White House on three occasions. More recently, she and her daughter Hanna launched “Masks with Meaning.”
In January 2020, Jerri & Hanna traveled to Kenya, Africa to work with rural villagers. When COVID hit, their African friends were hit hard. Masks were mandatory and those not wearing them were fined and put in jail. For a family of five, masks would cost a month’s wages for their African friends. They saw photos of the villagers wearing underwear over their faces so they would not be put in jail. Jerri and Hanna felt compelled to help. They and their mentor, Paula coordinated a shipment of 2,800 masks to the African village they visited to help out.
As Jerri says: “We strive to live in a world of possibility and creativity, even in the tough times. That is why we do what we do. Our hope is to be out of business and not need masks, but until then, we want to make the mask wearing experience a pleasure by providing people with a great fitting, high-quality mask made with three layers of fabric, a metal nose piece, and steeped in essential oils for good intentions and good vibes.”
