Introducing Social Entrepreneurs from GSBI 2008: Meet David Okello, from Coast Coconut Farms in Keny

The last 10 days have been truly exciting ones. I have had the amazing opportunity to participate in this year’s Global Social Benefit Incubator at Santa Clara University, a two-week in-residence mentoring program with social entrepreneurs from around the world.

Over the next few days I’ll be sharing a few thoughts about the program, its amazing potential and some of the specific challenges that these entrepreneurs face. I will also introduce the entrepreneurs that are participating in the program through a series of short video clips.

Today I want you to meet David Okello, who runs Coast Coconut Farms in Kenya and is improving the lives of rural farmers by adding value to the coconut crop and producing high quality, extra virgin coconut oil. So without further ado, I leave you in the company of David.
