After a week spent in the beautiful village of Mbwewe, the Googlers have experienced a lot. From debriefing the day and planning the next one, stargazing at night, enjoying chipsmayai directly from one of our entrepreneurs; and experiencing some really touching moments when we were able to make a difference to our entrepreneurs' businesses.
