Here are a few of my favourite photos from my sponsored trip to Kenya with ME To WE + Red Rose Tea through the Reach Out With Red Rose project. Another teacher, Kym, and I helped to build a school, met with the local Maasai mamas to learn about their different community cooperatives and micro-econonmic development, carried water on our heads and backs like the locals do every single day, attended a community well opening celebration, and spent some time with Craig Kielburger. We also learned how ME to WE has impacted the education, economy, and health of the community.
Going through these photos makes me teary– this was a time of transformation in my own life, and it was a truly a tremendous honour to be welcomed into these Maasaii communities and share their stories with my students + community upon our return.
This trip down memory lane makes me realize just how powerful, humbling, and inspirational this experience really was for me.
Since my son was born, I’ve been wanting to take him to Kenya with ME To WE to build schools, meet the community and learn about social enterprises.
