Everyone welcomed us, everywhere we went. The beautiful smiles, warmth and welcoming presence left an imprint on my mind and spirit.
At several places we visited, we were welcomed with the Maasai shuka, a traditional wear associated with the Masai people of East Africa. These shukas are usually worn by the Masai morans which differenciates them from other communities. We were greeted at the entrance where the Maasai shuka was wrapped around us.
What I experienced in Kenya far exceeded my expectations and erased many of the negative perceptions I had about Africa and to be clear… I know now that Kenya is a unique country in Africa, with its own distinct characteristics.
I have always believed in the power of dreams and imagination. When a dream like going to Africa becomes true, I remain speechless about the power of our minds.
“Our lives have changed a lot mostly because girls were denied that opportunity to attend education but through the Mama Sarah Obama Foundation, we have reached University level and we are grateful for Granny’s kindness and caring heart.”
