Kathy recently returned from a six-week stint as a volunteer for the USAID-funded Enabling Growth Through Investment and Enterprise (ENGINE) program implemented by ICMA. In her recap, she shares observations about the economic context and challenges, the cultural and religious landscape, and opportunities for educational tourism.
