mwezi
The Mwezi One project, a collaboration between Kiboko Projects and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, was a combined community and global health experience for rising second year medical students, in the hopes of increasing their levels of cultural humility. 

Nine students from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine class of 2021 mentored 20 junior and senior high school students from Pelham Lab HS, both located in the Bronx, in global health, focusing on cultural concepts of health.  Considering the cultural diversity of both the high school students and the mentors, this led to interesting conversations. They led discussions, on a weekly basis from March 2018 through May 2018.  In addition, all students worked on art projects, also reflecting thoughts about culture and health.  The art included face masks and photodiaries focusing on issues important to the students. Following that, the Einstein students, accompanied by the director of the GHF program and the Artistic Director of Kiboko Projects, traveled to a secondary school in Kalamba, Kenya as part of their Global Health Fellowship, where they mentored a group of 15-20 students there in a similar program.  The program also included communication via skype between the high school students in both countries.
