Jared Crawford ’84 (KSP fall ’83), owner of Matthews Safaris and Geocartographics, based in Karen, wrote, “There are many stories to tell on the conservation scene as the twin threats of uncontrolled development and the bush meat trade seriously strain the parks and reserves. Our key project has been our 40th anniversary Web site.” Explore it at

Kim Power Wishcamper ’98 (KSP spring ’97) and her husband traveled to Kenya and Tanzania in March.  Kim wrote, “Our trip was fantastic! It was amazing to visit the compound after 10 years and recognize some of the KSP staff. Our safari was great, of course, but the highlight was definitely the week we spent with ‘our’ family in a little village in western Kenya.”  Kim said that Eva Dunn-Froebig ’98 (KSP spring ’97) would soon be mailing out updated biosketch booklets to spring ’97 KSP alums.

Chris Bunting ’93 (KSP spring ’92) continues his work with the Northern Kenya Fund ( from his home in Bozeman, Mont.  NKF supports high-achieving students from Kenya’s northern Marsabit district who have completed primary school but do not have the financial means to attend secondary schools.  Chris co-founded NKF with Chachu Ganya ’96. Chachu is also director of the Pastoralist Integrated Support Program (PISP;, which he founded in 1996.  Based in Marsabit, PISP supports sustainable water access and improved resource management in northern Kenya’s Gabbra, Rendille, Turkana, Borana and Samburu communities. Chachu has provided several KSP participants the opportunity to complete their IDS components at PISP, including Patrick McLaughlin ’05 (KSP fall ’04), who spent four weeks there in fall 2004.  

Kenyan elections are scheduled for late 2007 and Chachu has been busy this year managing his MP campaign.  Chachu wrote, “I am running to represent North Horr constituency in the Kenya Parliament.  It is Kenya’s largest constituency in terms of land mass and also one of the poorest.”  As noted in the winter 2007 column, Joseph Lekuton ’91 serves in the Kenyan Parliament and will be up for reelection later this year.

Jessie Davie ’04 and Katie Gauthier ’04 (both KSP fall ’02), Brett Harvey ’02 (KSP fall ’00), and I spent the summer leading community service trips in Tanzania for Putney Student Travel.  Katie then traveled in Kenya and this fall begins graduate work in international affairs at the University of Oregon. 

Heading to graduate school seems to be a common choice these days!  This fall, Jessie is in environmental studies at the University of Montana, Sarah Ellis ’04 (KSP fall ’02) is studying international affairs at the University of Denver and Brendan Hayes ’04 (KSP spring ’03) is studying development at Ireland’s University College Dublin.  Hope Thornton ’01 (KSP fall ’99) spent the spring completing graduate research in Malawi, where she stayed to lead a month-long summer program for Putney Student Travel, focusing on public healthcare and HIV/AIDS.  Tristan Statler ’04 (KSP fall ’02) spent the summer working in a Cleveland law firm before beginning his third and final year at Case Western Reserve Law School. 

Jessie’s brother Lincoln Davie ’07 (KSP spring ’06) earned his EMT certification last spring and plans to spend next winter ski patrolling in Utah.  Jessie, Katie and Sarah met Amanda Pearson ’92 (KSP fall ’90) for brunch in Cambridge in June.  Amanda was prepping for a July trail race at Jay Peak in Vermont.

Anna Larson ’05 (KSP fall ’03) spent the last two years teaching third grade in Baton Rouge, La., but mentioned a possible move to Alaska. As this column went to print, Eli Mathews ’07 (KSP spring ’06) was researching middle school math-science teaching positions for next year and considering travel to Southeast Asia to teach English.

Lee Rosberg ’05 (KSP spring ’04) wrote from Great Britain where he was on assignment with Stone Environmental, an environmental consulting firm based in Montpelier, Vt., where he works as a field geologist.   Lee and his wife are the proud parents of a baby girl born last fall!
