Visiting fellows participate in a global exchange in the Black Hills

This interview originally aired on "In the Moment" on SDPB Radio.

Several fellows through the Eisenhower Fellowships program are touring the United States this spring. Two of them, Abigail Komu and Torplus Yomnak, are in the Black Hills as part of their visit.

Komu is the founder of Mosi Africa and a network manager and member of Nairobi's Business Angels Network. Her work focuses on training and mentoring entrepreneurship, especially among women.

Yomnak is the co-founder of HAND Social Enterprise. He received an Anti-Corruption Champion Award from the U.S. State Department in 2021.

They're in South Dakota through the Dacotah Territory International Visitor Program and stepped into the SDPB studio to share their work and what lessons they learned here that they're taking with them.
