Vicki L Jones, Bahari's Founder & Executive Director, first visited Kenya on a mission trip in 2006. It was a realization of a life-long dream and the experience ignited her desire to work in Kenya on an on-going basis. When desire turned to passion, Ms. Jones took the next step to establish Bahari.  Ms. Jones is a Costume Designer, Writer & Producer, who holds a BA in Clothing Design from Drexel University and a MLA from Johns Hopkins University.  Vicki has worked in theatre and video, designing at the New Federal Theatre, Negro Ensemble Company and Billie Holiday Theatre in New York; regional and university theatre, and independent film.   She designs under WRaptures Designs and was an adjunct professor of Fashion Design. VIcki served as Vice-President and President of the Zonta Club of Baltimore, the local chapter of Zonta International, an international service organization which works to improve the status of women worldwide.  She is Executive Director of Bethesda Arts Inc., a non-profit theatre company which she formed to teach theatre craft to youth and adults who face challenges with reading and writing skills.
