to Vote for “Food Fence” in the GOOD Maker Challenge!!!

Hello NY-chapter,

I met some of you in the later part of last year.

I’m happy to report that I became Design Fellow for  Football for Hope Congo and I have already been living in Cape Town for 2 months, working here at the local AfH office before I’ll move to Congo in about 2 months.

All the best,

Oliver Kienzi
