    Itinerary

    Day 1Help at a Soup Kitchen

    Getting involved in helping disadvantaged communities is bothan opportunity to engage with local people and a rewarding way for travellers to contribute to alleviating the problems of poverty in Kenya. Today you visit a children’s centre on the outskirts of Nairobi supported by One Horizon, which provides the kids with their only regular meal each day. You lend a hand by helping to prepare and distribute nutritious food, and in return will receive beautiful, happy smiles and witness firsthand how communities work together to help the hungry and most vulnerable.

    Day 2They Said It Can’t Be Done

    Spend an incredible day with some amazing Kenyan women who have managed to overcome the most difficult challenges that life can bring. You will visit the Women’s Empowerment Centre where local women in the area undertake an 18-month program that teaches them lifestyle, trade and entrepreneurial skills so they can set up their own businesses. The experience of meeting these determined and resourceful women will allow you to walk away with a new perspective on how teaching empowerment and skills can lift people out of poverty to support and keep families together.

    Day 3Grandmothers Love Their Pigs

    Today you will visit another local community to meet some of the endearing and entrepreneurial Kenyan grandmothers who play a vital role in raising their grandchildren and providing a home and meals to many generations in their family. Visit a local grandmother’s pig farm and discover how pig-husbandry provides food and financial support and the bio-gas system creates energy out of the waste to power a home. Sit with the grandmothers and listen to their powerful stories of how they broke the cycle of poverty in between some joyful singing and dancing and a cup of local tea, and on this inspirational day you learn how resilient people can be.

    Day 4Become a Maasai for the Day

    Venture into rural Maasai country where you will meet a family and immerse yourself in the midst of the daily hustle and bustle of Maasai village life. Your host will be one of the village elders, an heir to his clan, and you meet his wife and children too. The male children of the family are young morans, the traditional defenders of the tribe. Learn about their traditional rites of passage while also discovering the intricacies of the Maasai family structure. An amazing day where you will get the chance to become an honorary Maasai, learn how to throw a traditional spear and the techniques needed to survive in the bush.

    One Horizon Team Dinners

    On days 1 and 3of this tour, we enjoy dinner at the restaurants the locals love in Nairobi – we always have lots of fun and it’s a great opportunity to discuss and ask us all the questions that come to mind about the various communities and projects we visit.
