On March 23, LIA is proud to participate in the first annual social enterprise conference, the Freedom & Fashion Collective, in Los Angeles, CA.
According to Freedom & Fashion, the conference’s goal “is to educate, equip and empower various non-profit and for-profit social enterprises, activists, artists, students, faith groups and the general public” on how to be a part of the solution to end various human rights violations.
The conference will feature more than 30 speakers from the West Coast and will also include a Ceremony Runway Show the day prior.
If you’re in the Los Angeles area, come out and say hello and perhaps buy a pair of Konjos!
More details about the conference can be found here.

We are proud to announce This Is My Normal, one of LIA’s documentaries, has been selected to show in the first annual Justice Film Festival, part of The Justice Conference Feb. 22-24, 2013.
This Is My Normal explores two primary questions: “What is poverty?” and “What is normal for the world’s poor?” through the eyes of those living in Mathare Valley, a slum in Nairobi, Kenya.
We are honored to have the documentary show among such esteemed documentaries and movies.
If you plan to attend the Justice Conference, be sure to attend the Film Festival as well and catch the screening of This Is My Normal at 12:25 p.m. on February 24.
Read the complete details about the festival in the press release here.

Over the last year, we’ve made great strides to keep you better informed on LIA’s progress and the work we are doing. This year, we are continuing to build on those efforts, so you can celebrate the progresses we share together and all that God enables us to do for the Kingdom.
Dr. Muindi wrote a letter to the LIA family casting the vision for the ministry in 2013 – where LIA is headed, what we are excited about and the challenges we continue to face. Read the letter in its entirety.
