Alex’s Story – 6 Weeks In Kenya

From elation, sadness, delight and relief, these were just some of the emotions that I went through on my trip. I was able to experience Kenya and the trip made me realize how fortunate I am and as well as giving me the opportunity to see and do many things I never thought I would get the chance to do, and for this I have to give all thanks to the charity.

How can children have these rights in a community where extreme poverty exists? How can children be accorded these rights in an unjust society? How can children enjoy these rights when they have to fight for their own survival, every day of their lives?

Adam’s Kenyan Experience
March 2016

Some children spend the evening walking miles home alone after school with only school uniform to live in

I’m back in the uk, and I can honestly say the past 10 days have been the most emotional and enjoyable 10 days of my whole life.

I have met families that have next to nothing but yet still remain positive in every way possible. I have met and bonded with children who do not stop smiling when they literally have nothing to their name. Everyone over there was just so cheerful, smily and happy and it’s really opened my eyes to the world and has taught me so many things.

I’ve met kids from all sorts of backgrounds. Some getting caned daily for making mistakes, some getting pushed around and forced to work from such a young age. Some that are severely bullied and dread going to school. Some spending the evening walking miles home alone after school with only school uniform to live in. Some having no homes and no parents to go to and no place to sleep and no food to eat.

image1It’s made me realise how fortunate I am. This trip has been a roller coaster ride with ups and downs but an amazing experience it has been and going to Kenya was such a good choice. I do not regret a second of it and I can safely say I have come back realising that you can still be happy when you have nothing to your name. I just want to say a big thankyou to John Cornelius for making this trip possible and as amazing as it was and another thanks to Phoebe Scotland Faye-Sophie Evans and George Scotland for being part of the trip and making it as good as it was.

Eunice’s Story

My name is Eunice Juma and am 23 years old. I come from a small village called Buchirinya in Mumias Town.

I am a total orphan after the death of both my parents.My childhood wasn’t a good one because I had to be relocated every now and then to different relatives which means I had to change schools too that affected me in one way or the other but the good part of it is that I went through education despite all the challenges.
