This Is What It Means To Have Roots In Africa

Teri's Doing It! Podcast, Ep 1, Dec. 27, 2023

In the first episode of her new podcast Teri’s Doing It!, Teri talks to Cedric Nwafor, the CEO of Roots Africa. They delve into Cedric's campaign to eradicate hunger and poverty across Africa with a focus on nurturing entrepreneurship and fostering local communities of change makers. This, along with what Teri discovered in a small village in the Kamuli District, serves as the platform for their conversation, emphasizing the power of leveraging local resources for sustainable living.

Their conversation takes a personal turn as they discuss her recent trip to Uganda with Cedric and his Roots Africa team in 2023. Teri shares her observations, having revisited Uganda for the first time since she lived there as a small child. Witnessing the changes that have occurred since then was eye-opening and deeply transformative for her.

Their journey sparked an inspiring initiative— the Goats For Kamuli Kids program aimed at nurturing a source of ongoing funding to sponsor education for children there. It encapsulates the spirit of Roots Africa’s mission.

Join Teri and Cedric to learn about the trip, the Goats for Kamuli Kids initiative and the deeply heartfelt experiences they had there — it's an intriguing conversation that shouldn't be missed!

A friend once told me, "Teri, you'll never meet anyone who doesn't know at least one thing you don't." It's true. Teri's Doing It! podcasts feature inspiring people from whom I've learned a lot. I hope the stories they tell do the same for you.
I'm a travel writer and podcaster who has realized that time is finite and I'm getting closer to the end than the beginning. Because I don't want to go out with a long, undone to-do list, I'm doing things these days I always wanted to do but hadn't made time for.
Join me. Hear from inspiring people who aren't letting grass grow under their feet no matter their age, who have found their passion and pursue it with all their hearts. And then go out and mark things off your to-do list.
Carpe diem! What have you got to lose?
