Rye Barcott: What Can I Do?

Each speaker who took the dais at the Aspen Ideas closing ceremony was asked to answer the question: What Can I Do?

Barcott co-founded Carolina for Kibera, a non-governmental organization that helps break cycles of violence and poverty by investing in young leaders in the Kibera slum of Nairobi, Kenya. Here he shares a poignant story from Kibera and the power of $26.
