Hello - Almost time!   (published in Kenya)

June 21, 2017 by   Comments(1)

Hello Everyone,

My name is Jodie I am taking part in the Kenya - Conservation project at Soysambu for 4 weeks starting from 2nd September 2017. I am really excited and eager to get out there and make a start!

I am currently In the process of writing up the start of my travel journal, which I'm planning on using as a day to day diary whilst i am over in Kenya, making notes and enteries of my daily activities; sights, sounds and smells!

Trying to make sure I have everything organised and sorted ready for my adventure! Almost time for my vaccinations which I'm really nervous about! But will be worth it in the end!

I am also starting to feel a little nervous about going alone! It will be my first time travelling solo and for someone that is scared of flying is a big deal! I think it will help me develop and grow as an individual And I'm looking forward to pushing my personal boundaries and coming out of my comfort zone!

Animals have always been a passion of mine and this adventure is the trip of my dreams! I can't wait to make even the tiniest difference to some of the most beautiful species and being able to see them in the wild is an actual dream come true. I know I will be spending my time at Soysambu smiling from ear to ear!

I know that this journey will change my life on so many different levels and I can't wait to share the experience with like minded people!

Will keep my blog updated before, during and after my trip! Eek! So excited!

First week of building   (published in Kenya)

August 5, 2016 by   Comments(2)

        Today was the fourth day working on the project in Kenya. Our project is making bathrooms for Vision Star school, because they don't have any. We have made very good progress on our project. There are also four other local construction workers telling us what to do! We work on the project in the mornings and then in the evenings it is fun time in Kenya. We play with the kids from Vision Star school quite a bit. They love singing songs and saying poems. Their ages are from 3 to 7. There is 105 students at the school with three different classrooms and three teachers. Another place we went after work was Furaha Foundation. This is a place where orphaned children go. There are many children of all ages. We made paper airplanes and they had never seen that before so they thought that was pretty cool. The boys and I had a competition to see who could fly theirs the farthest. An eight year old boy named Kevin won. He was my little buddy! We also bathed the small children before bed time. On the third day we went to Mama Kenya and learned about the Kenyan culture. So far my experience here has been amazing and I am excited to get the toilets done so the children have a sanitary place to go to the bathroom!

Today is my second day at my host families home

! I have met 8 of the people that I will be working with for the next two weeks. I am excited to get started on the project! But before the project starts we had to get some things settled in the office and get a Kenyan phone. We spend our off time at the host families home hanging out and playing with all of the children!

I would like to thank everyone who has prayed and blessed me to go on this trip. In this photo there is a suitcase filled with donations I have been given and gathered. I am extremely excited to distribute these items once I get there. I will also be buying more donations once I get there. It is just one day untill I start this extraordinary adventure, and I can't wait to see what lies ahead!
