African Adventure With a Purpose

October 2-16th – Kenya & Zambia

Frances Tieulie, Suzanne Watts and I will be departing for Eastern Africa. We all sponsor orphaned elephants and rhinos through the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and will be visiting our babies in Kenya. We will also be doing a 5 day trek to the top of Mount Kenya. This is Africa’s 2nd highest peek after Mount Kilimanjaro, which I experienced in 2008!

After these more touristy adventures, we will be traveling to Zambia where we will bring a conference to the women in a rural area near Ndola. Our aim is to love and nurture the women and give them a sense that they are being supported by women all around the world. We will be teaching on hygiene, beauty and business. The first two items seem frivolous, but we are told that this is a huge need. The men of the households use the prostitutes because they are more aesthetically pleasing than their wives! So if we can teach some skills that will help keep families together, we will have blessed them.
