Our young boy comes from one the most horrific backgrounds you could imagine, and the biggest miracle is that he survived the sadistic abuse that he lived through. He was the second born of 4 children. He had a very gentle loving Mama and his tortured face softens when he remembers tiny bits about his

Being in Kenya is always a roller coaster of emotion and none more than this trip. I find that I move from laughing to crying from moment to moment. Things are pretty full on at this moment and we face some tough decisions in the next few days – when that happens you can forget

Feeling proud and emotional and missing our Kenyan family more than ever at this special time of year. After our ‘feed our family in town’ campaign yesterday, we had such a wonderful response from you all and it was recieved well in town and our boys enjoyed the day so much. 

The past is haunting her

The past of one of our beautiful girls is continuing to haunt her. This Rafiki Angel has a past life that I don’t think many of us could survive. She was prostituted for 10 years until she came to us at 12 years old. She is now 17. She struggles in daily life but she

Our Video Link is a Reality

This may be one the most mind-blowing moments of our project. The day the video link went live really can’t tell the story of the eight years prior. Eight years of planning, talking, being told how ridiculous our plan was; Anne-Marie being turned away from meetings because she was a ‘silly woman’ and yet the

Sitting at breakfast this trip has been a joy. We have taken two boys from our older Kings house with us each morning. It gives me a way of ensuring I spend time with them all, as I have a crazy busy agenda while I’m here. It has other impacts to. Many of the boys

Safari Mwema 2017

I am not sure where to start with this post.  It is long overdue.. It should have come months ago when Laura from Asante Adventures started ‘Safari Mwema’ for Rafiki Mwema.  It should have come while all of the wonderful participants where busy working hard raising funds to reach their $2000 target or perhaps it
