Kenya, here I come!

So, my bags are almost packed and I’m ready to go! Kenya, here I come!

A few months ago I was asked to go to Kenya to help organise a summer camp for 450 kids in the Kibera Slum in Nairobi, Kenya. It didn’t take much to persuade me that this will be an amazing opportunity. It will be challenging for sure and that’s not just thinking of crafts that I can get 450 kids to do while staying in control of the situation! 🙂 Everyone in the office has been so helpful, bringing me crayons, stickers, jewellery, make up and even 400 paper plates for masks! With this I also want to thank everyone in the head quarters office that ate the cakes in my bake sale to raise money for this trip! You guys are the best, seriously!

Back then I thought I had heaps of time to get ready for this great trip, but today as I was running around the shops trying to get the final things, it hit me that I am leaving in the morning! I am very excited and just a little bit nervous!

As well as being sufficiently challenged by the kids in the slum, I will also be visiting the Hagadera, Ifo and Dagahaley Refugee camps that make up the world’s biggest refugee camp in Dadaab where we do our Child Survival work. This is a massive camp with 6,000 new people arriving every month. WOW! I really don’t know what to expect, but I do know that I will come back a changed person, and very fired up for the amazing work that we as Save the Children do in Kenya and all over the world.

Wish me luck on this insane adventure! 🙂
