Meet Beatrice who, in her late 60's became an entrepreneurial grandma. Her success as a pig farmer came after a life of struggle.
Born into a large family and in the colonial period of Kenya's independence struggle, Beatrice and her family were confronted by poverty and the struggles which came with it. Getting enough to eat was a daily challenge let alone an education. Beatrice's story will inspire you. A compelling struggle that shows what can be achieved with resilience and perseverance.
Beatrice's story is told in her home where she lives with her husband, children and grandchildren. And you will also enjoy a hearty meal with her and those of her family. It's an intimate look at Kenyan life with a historical perspective that will leave you in awe of her achievements and the human spirit.Book Now Enquire Now Download PDF

I have been to Africa many times, and this was the first time I left feeling as though I'd truly got an insight into the lives of those who live there. Each project I visited showed me another side of life, the days were very well organised, and everyone at One Horizon and those who are part of the programs made me feel so welcome and looked after. The One Horizon team also went above and beyond to help me sort out matters that arose outside of their tours, their kindness and flexibility made a huge difference. Thank you for the work you do, for your love and care for those around you and for 3 magical days in Kenya.
