Joy Murphy: September 2015
Every two years a work party travels to Kenya to work alongside the local people in one or two of the projects supported by Karibuni. The work we do is secondary to the friendship and fellowship we experience with the project staff, the children's carers, and most of all with the children and young people who we are sponsoring. You may find yourself painting, hammering, doing crafts in the classroom, playing football, learning Kenyan songs and dances — or all five! After work you will stay either in a church guest house in Nairobi, or in the homes of local church members; either way you will experience warm Kenyan hospitality and friendship. You will be invited to worship in your hosts' churches — African music and songs, with more warm fellowship and a real welcome. Everyone comes home humbled, inspired and challenged and many can't wait to re-visit! The working time is for two weeks and then you may stay for another week during which you can be a tourist — go on safari, visit the Elephant Orphanage, the Giraffe Sanctuary or the Karen Blixen House of 'Out of Africa'. There is also the opportunity to re-visit one or more of the Nairobi projects. So, how about it? It would be great to take a group from Aylesbury Vale with us and show you what we are doing on the ground in Kenya. You won't ask me again, 'Have you had a lovely holiday?' You will know it is so much more than that! We are planning to take the next group on or around 5th or 6th February and will be meeting prospective travellers in October to tie up some loose ends and help people to come to a firm decision. If you think you might be interested, contact me on 01296 428319 or email:
