On transit

Posted on Apr 6, 2017 | Comments Off on On transit

Taking a business trip or even leisure trip and going through the immigration process and airports processes is a normal thing to most people. We normally travel oblivious of every other process in the same airport or plane with us; minding our own business to the latter. This was the case for my colleagues and I when we were returning to Kenya from Ethiopia. Checking in and queuing at airport in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia was normal. As we went up the escalator in search of our gate we met a lady who seemed not to be sure of where she was going. She was staring at the escalator, seemingly not...

The face of joy

Posted on Feb 15, 2017 | Comments Off on The face of joy

I think one of the most satisfying things on earth is seeing someone who has not known joy and peace finally find it. It is even more satisfying to be involved in their walk to realizing this and watch their reactions afterwards.

They were excited about the space and the faces they met;...

New Rescue Center for Victims of Trafficking in Kenya

Posted on Nov 30, 2016 | Comments Off on New Rescue Center for Victims of Trafficking in Kenya

Over the past 2-3 months we have been dealing with a shelter crisis (read about it her) that caused disruption to our work with reintegration and rehabilitation of victims of trafficking. More importantly, it meant we could no longer offer a secure and stable environment for the victims we were supporting. After a lot of work, long hours and tears from our dedicated team, we are extremely happy to announce that from today there will be a dedicated rescue center for victims of trafficking in Kenya. The local Advisory Council and the District Children Office inspected the rescue center and...
