african golden joys.
hello friends. lovers. other strangers...
here we are! off on an adventure - volunteering and travelling about. some brief skips through london, edinburgh and cairo - touring the sites and visiting friends and family.
next destination - east africa. more specifically elangata wuas - a small Maasai village, two hours south of nairobi, kenya. here, we will be living in an eco-camp for 2 months and volunteering with a small, canadian grassroots NGO called africa soma.
the word "soma" in swahili means to learn, study and read. the organization's mission - "a nonprofit organization that supports African youth in slums and remote regions through innovative educational initiatives." lots more info on the website - check out www.africasoma.org. we will be focussing most of our energy on the inner-city savannah exchange and community library project.
in the midst of all this fun we will be volunteering in the local primary school, hopefully making many new friends and settling into community life!
the last part of our trip will hopefully take us to some nearby countries - but more updates on this later.
we hope you enjoy the photos.
and post a message if you're so inclined!
we miss you all and hope you are healthy and happy.
peace and lots of love.
