A Family Experience of a Lifetime
August 2019

Our fundraising was fun – we held dinner nights at local restaurants, sold items at car boot sales as well as eBay and ran tombola stalls.

We received the warm Kenyan welcome at the guest house and felt immediately at home. That day we had a tour of the compound and surrounding area including the Day Centre, Medical Centre, Spirulina greenhouse and Moses’ tree. We were welcomed by the children with a joyful song and played with them for a while.

Our main project was to build a cowshed and water tank for our sponsored child and her family. This alongside other home visits were amazingly humbling experiences, the perfect way to see our funds spent and feel part of the local community.

Another way we made a difference was to provide mattresses, mosquito nets and school supplies.

One of us ran a music project with the vulnerable children that visited the Day Centres for the feeding project. Each child took home a home-made instrument and a head full of songs. It was an emotional experience and we felt that each child went home with something to remember.

The trip to Kakamega Forest was fantastic. We walked 12kms and saw many monkeys and birds as well as learning about the flora.

It was lovely to walk to church with the children. We had arranged and practiced a song, which we enjoyed performing and it was very well received. We were so pleased that our son, who has autism, felt comfortable enough to make a few tiny friends. He gained much from the trip.

We were really impressed with the delicious food ranging from Kenya classics to popcorn and pancakes. The beds were very comfortable and we felt safe and secure. The toilets and showers were better than expected.

We added a Safari experience to the end of our trip. It was awesome. We saw 50 different animals & birds. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and skilled at spotting.

We all gained a lot both individually and as a family.

We definitely recommend The Nasio family experience. We all gained a lot both individually and as a family. We will continue to support the charity. As we write this we are at a car boot sale raising money to build a house for our family’s sponsored child.
