Together We Can is a tour in the Magical Kenya Signature Experience Collection – curated, unique, authentic and exceptional once-in-a-lifetime Kenyan travel experiences accredited by the Kenya Tourist Board.
On this 4-day One Horizon cultural exchange, join us for the opportunity to visit four grassroots Kenyan communities that tourists rarely have a chance to genuinely engage with. Your time will be spent in a local soup kitchen, meeting the strong and courageous women at a vocation and lifestyle training centre, and be inspired by some entrepreneurial Kenyan grandmothers. This experience will leave you humbled and heartened and you will finish the tour by spending time with the Maasai and learn about their fascinating way of life that hasn’t changed for centuries.
Accommodation Name: Palacina Hotel (5 stars) - subject to availability
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Tea/coffee and water provided all day
Getting involved in helping disadvantaged communities is both an opportunity to engage with local people and a rewarding way for travellers to contribute to alleviating the problems of poverty in Kenya. Today you visit a feeding centre on the outskirts of Nairobi supported by One Horizon, which provides the kids with their only regular meal each day. You lend a hand by helping to prepare and distribute nutritious food, and in return will receive beautiful, happy smiles and witness firsthand how communities work together to help the hungry and most vulnerable
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Tea/coffee and water provided all day
Spend an incredible day with some amazing Kenyan women who have managed to overcome the most difficult challenges that life can bring. You will visit the Women's Empowerment Centre where local women in the area undertake an 18-month program that teaches them lifestyle, trade and entrepreneurial skills, so they can set up their own businesses. The experience of meeting these determined and resourceful women will allow you to walk away with a new perspective on how teaching empowerment and skills can lift people out of poverty to support and keep families together.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Tea/coffee and water available all day
Today you will visit another local community to meet endearing and entrepreneurial Kenyan grandmothers who play a vital role in raising their grandchildren and providing a home and meals to many generations in their family. Visit a local grandmother’s pig farm and discover how pig-husbandry provides food and financial support and the bio-gas system creates energy out of the waste to power a home. Sit with the grandmothers and listen to their powerful stories of how they broke the cycle of poverty in between some joyful singing and dancing and a cup of local tea, and on this inspirational day you learn how resilient people can be.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Tea/coffee and water available all day
Venture into rural Maasai country where you will meet a family and immerse yourself in the midst of the daily hustle and bustle of Maasai village life. Your host will be one of the village elders, an heir to his clan, and you meet his wife and children too. The male children of the family are young morans, the traditional defenders of the tribe. Learn about their traditional rites of passage while also discovering the intricacies of the Maasai family structure. An amazing day when you will get the chance to become an honorary Maasai, learn how to throw a traditional spear and the techniques needed to survive in the bush.
