Kids for Kenya
Transcript of Kids for Kenya
We worked hard to raise money so that we could travel to Kenya to build a school, because we want to give children there a brighter future. Education can empower children and entire communities to break the cycle of poverty for future generations. Our hard work payed off, a group of 10 of us went to Kenya this past March to build a school in the Maasai Mara region. The trip was a life changing experience and we are ecstatic to have had the opportunity to travel to Kenya to build a school. After the trip we continued working with Free the Children to rid the world of poverty and stop the exploitation of children. We will share our experiences and spread the word, encouraging everyone to join us and the Me to We community to make a difference in the world. Free the Children is an organization that has a mission to "free children from poverty and exploitation and free young people from the notion that they are powerless to affect positive change in the world. Through domestic empowerment programs and leadership training, Free The Children inspires young people to develop as socially conscious global citizens and become agents of change for their peers around the world." side note: We arrived in Kenya at 9 pm Nairobi time, we met our trip leaders, Steph and Taylor and we headed to the Rosslyn Centre with another trip group. In the morning we began the drive to our ultimate destination Sikkirar, which took around 5 hours. On our way there we took a pit stop at the Great Rift valley. After much anticipation we arrived at our camp, which would be our home for the next 12 days. + the showers dining tent +outhouses our tents And we met the wonderful staff, that took care of us while we stayed in Sikkirar.
