Reflect :: Surviving Tragedy with Community

Rose Chege, Tatua Community Organizer in Ngong, shares about life after the Westgate tragedy.

It has been hard, just trying to grasp all that has been happening. The Westgate incident showed me that sometimes, it’s so hard to not know what really is happening, having 100 different stories from 100 different sources. I have decided to take each day at a time, because you really can never know exactly what will happen.

This has been much easier because of my partner Jacob. Jacob will call me occasionally to share his ideas and we can then float ideas and thoughts about things back and forth. This partnership was especially uplifting to me in this hard time.
