Kenyan women turning their lives around
Empowering Mothers is an energizing day of connecting with inspiring women, hearing their incredible stories and playing your own personal role in helping them forge change.
Not so long ago they were homeless with their children, ostracized by their families and sick. They were women with few resources, little support and hope. Those days are now closing behind them. They are part of One Horizon's Vocational & Lifestyle Program, which is setting them up for independent, sustainable futures based on new small business and life skills. In Kenya, women make up over 50% of wage earners.Book Now Enquire Now
We are a proud member of
The International Ecotourism Society
Which brings together individuals and organisations committed to helping local
communities and the environment.
Empowering Mothers is an uplifting day spent with an inspirational group of Kenyan women, but the drive to meet them is also amazing as we take in sights such as the eclectic Ngong Road markets.
Our One Horizon Women’s Empowerment Centre is also a hive of activity as the women are busy sewing, making candles, beading jewellery, studying small business and learning a range of other skills that will enable them to start their own small businesses.
Our 18-month program is a holistic one that focuses on mind and body as well as vocational training so there are a myriad of ways you can become involved here.
As you connect with the women they'll share their stories and give you deep insights into Kenyan culture, traditions and extended family relationships.
- Air conditioned hotel transfers. We'll collect you at 9am from your Nairobi hotel and drop you back at about 5pm. Along the way we’ll show you some amazing sights as we make a short stop at the electric Ngong Road markets and travel through communities that tourists rarely see.
- All activities at our Women's Empowerment Centre
- A light lunch
- Unlimited fruit, tea, coffee and water
Beatrice, Kenyan Mum
One Horizon encouraged me to re-train and become part of their women's program and 18 months after that I graduated. I was able to keep my family together and to earn income in my own small business. I am now employed training others. My life changed when One Horizon came into it and I am now able to support my family. My life has changed so much and I want to thank One Horizon for that.
Wonderful Tour. I had a wonderful time on this tour. The ladies are friendly and will answer questions and ask you some too. Had a good time sitting and listening to their stories and listening to them sing. Had a nice lunch and the guides were very nice and open to questions.
This tour should be required for every visitor to Nairobi! It provides a unique look into the lives of the Kenyan people. It is life changing as you see the daily struggles and challenges of women who are faced with the burden of providing for their children and grandchildren after growing up in a cycle of never ending poverty. You become an active participant in helping to break the cycle and help them achieve self-reliance. You will interact with wonderful grandmothers who will help you hold and feed their animals. They will share their stories with you, cook with you, teach you, and love and laugh with you. Your heart will open and change for the better. This should be your first tour choice in Nairobi.
Life Changing! I was moved to tears hearing some of these women stories! They are strong and I am so grateful to have met them. We made bracelets, shared laughter, danced and drank tea. Best time and if I could I would give this 10 stars!!
I just want to thank One Horizon and Sol (our guide) again for such a wonderful and eye-opening day. What you do in this country is short of miraculous. We will definitely continue to help out however we can when we reach the States and see how we can get further reach for the children and women you help every day. Thank you so very much and I hope this is not the last time we all meet again.
