Sisters Connect in Kenya
When Lauren Balog and Elisa Morgan traveled with the
ONE Campaign to Kenya last July, the pair had known
each other about six months, but they didn’t realize they
are Chi Omega Sisters when they set off to visit African
clinics, shadow home HIV testers, observe a school’s early
reading programs, and meet with women farmers.
While touring a sewing project for disenfranchised and
forgotten women refugees in Nairobi, they met American
student-intern Anna Taylor, who was starting her own
sewing project and thrift store for women in the slums.
The three fell into conversation and soon a chorus of “I’m
a Chi Omega!” rang out as they discovered their mutual
“I couldn’t believe it!” said Lauren. “It took meeting another
Sister halfway around the world to discover that Chi
Omega is truly for a lifetime—and universal!”
Lauren is an initiate of Epsilon Alpha/U of Oklahoma;
Elisa is an alumna of Iota/U of Texas–Austin; and Anna
Taylor is a collegiate member of Psi/U of Arkansas–Fayetteville.
