Kenya, Africa

This trip was an adventure of a lifetime.  At We Day in Toronto, one of our students won a trip for her and six others to visit a Free the Children village in Kenya.  While in Kenya, we spent a lot of time learning about the organization’s Build a Village model.  We stayed in the village of Pimbiniet in the Maasai Mara region of the country.  We visited many sites daily and had a lot of time to reflect on our experiences.  We spent some time in the village helping to build a new kitchen for their school.  We also spent a full day on Safari in the Lemek Conservatory.  Rarely a day goes by that I don’t think about some aspect of this trip and how it has helped to shape my understanding of the world and our place in it.  See the separate Safari page for pictures from our day on the Savannah.

Our group was profiled by the Bluewater District School Board for Excellence in Education.  Read the brief here…
