Kate Crowley Kenya Program Director Takaungu, Kenya Email: kcrowley@eastafricancenter.org

Kate graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara with a Bachelor's degree in History and received her Master's degree in International Affairs in 2006 from the New School University's Graduate Program in International Affairs. While attending the New School, she worked in India, researching micro-finance and micro-enterprise programs for rural women. Kate also completed a project for the New York Alliance Against Sexual Assault, assessing the needs and available services for undocumented immigrant women who had been sexually abused or assaulted. Kate has worked for the Save Darfur campaign, raising awareness about the genocide in Sudan, and helped organize a 75,000-person rally in Washington, DC for the organization. Kate first became involved with the EAC through the New School University, completing her final practicum project with the EAC's sewing group. After working with the EAC for more than a year in the U.S., she moved to Takaungu, Kenya to work as a consultant to the Takaungu Sewing Self-Help Group and an assistant to the Program Manager. In July of 2008, she became the EAC's Program Director in Kenya. In her spare time Kate has formed a garden club for the Vutakaka students.
