Kenyan Grandmas are often responsible for raising their grandchildren
Go Granny Go will give you real insights into Kenyan culture and how grandmas struggle to care for their extended families - sometimes up to 20 family members are living in a grandma's one-room corrugated iron home.
This one-day experience is a rare chance to visit grassroots Kenya and see how our dynamic pig and chicken farming programs, with the involvement of travellers, are helping these inspirational grandmas navigate their way out of poverty.
You'll meet grandmas who’ve left our program because they've grown their farms into sustainable businesses as well as others who are just starting out.
All are warm and welcoming as they invite you to share their daily lives - enjoying 'a cuppa' with them, learning how to cook up a traditional meal of Ugali, helping out with the farming activities or joining our team with our animal husbandry training.
This is Kenya so there's also lots of laughter and traditional song and dance.
The bonds you'll form with the grandmas are real and genuine as they share cultural insights and stories that will stay with you always.
Understanding where they've come from and how they're changing their lives is truly inspiring, playing your own integral role in our programs is immensely rewarding.
At last these grandmas are truly happy and, we think you'll agree, it's an absolute privilege and joy to share a day with them.
On Go Granny Go! you may be surprised by village life. Most of the grandmas you'll meet have suffered from boredom, hunger, anxiety and depression - with no income, they've been isolated and undernourished.
However over time, we see the shift from despair to hope as they embrace our farming, peer support, biogas and field kitchen programs. As their health and situation improves, so too do the grandmas' demeanours. Their future is as bright as their engaging personalities.
- Air conditioned transfers. We'll meet you at your Nairobi hotel at 9am and drop you back at about 5pm. Along the way we'll show you some amazing sights as we journey through suburban and rural communities that tourists rarely see.
- A light lunch.
- Unlimited fruit, tea, coffee and bottled water.

Helen, Kenyan Grandma
One Horizon has changed my life and words cannot express what I feel. Of all the people who have offered help, One Horizon have been the only ones that changed our lives for the better. They not only bought me pigs, but paid for their feed. Without the pig feed we would never have got anywhere because I couldn't feed my family, let alone pigs. My family's life is so much better now because of what they have done. May God bless them always.
To quote my husband:'Glenys went away talking about animals and came home talking about the people'. We ended (our trip to Africa) on a high by spending a day in Nairobi with One Horizon. I recommend this tour as a truly rewarding experience. The money paid buys pigs for women to start a pig-breeding and selling business, and thus support their families. We spent time with 2 beautiful grandmas, cooking chapatis together for lunch then seeing their home, vege garden and pigpens. Hearing their life stories brought tears to our eyes, but they have truly come a long way. Inspirational! Everyone we met was cheerful, friendly and happy to do anything for us. Their happiness was contagious!
