The trip of a lifetime!
By visiting this website, you may have learned we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization focused on connecting need with supply for good, with an emphasis on self-sustainability.
We are currently working with Kenya locals to develop self-sustaining programs that help underprivileged communities build a better life for themselves and their children. (To read more about our past projects, check out our Success Stories).
We want to provide people like you, who are outside of these communities, a chance to discover the country, the culture, and especially the daily life of the children we support. The purpose of this trip is to raise awareness, take part in the sustainable programs we are developing there, and most of all, to spend time with these beautiful Kenyan children. The impact you make by sharing yourselves with them will last a lifetime.
We lodge at the Morning Star Children’s Home, an orphanage we know well in the town of Kiambu. This orphanage is home to 42 children, ranging in age from 18 months to 18 years. Reah and her husband Francis provide the loving atmosphere and are considered family. Once on property we supply you with a place to stay, a bed in a dorm setting and three meals a day, including clean water and local ground transportation. The cost for this is typically $75 per day. This is dependent on the number of people participating each week. This per diem is exclusive of the cost of your individual airfares, which you arrange on your own.
During your stay in Kenya, we will visit different orphanages and schools around Nairobi on a variety of projects, such as greenhouse and chicken coop builds, water well digging and water tank installations. Additionally, together we create workshops for the children, such as art, music, reading, coloring and the like. We schedule a free day during which you can visit a nearby animal reserve, or an elephant orphanage, for a nominal entrance fee.
To get a better idea what to expect from this trip, we invite you to read the weekly blog we posted from our last trip.
