Light on the Horizon starts at Nairobi's Giraffe Center, which has saved hundreds of Rothschild Giraffes. The education center provides a comprehensive education for visitors about how we can all play a role in the conservation of habitats and the preservation of wildlife and giraffes in particular. The center enables people to have a closer look at these majestic creatures.
Our African wildlife conservation theme continues visiting the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, the most successful elephant rehabilitation program in the world. Here you can see the elephants and hear the story about the complex process for returning elephants to the wild. The elephants that end up at the center are usually those who have been injured in falls and abandoned, or those who have lost their mothers due to poachers or the interference of humans.
At around noon we’ll farewell the wildlife to spend the afternoon visiting the rural homes of Kenyan grandmas, inspirational women who have taken on the responsibility of caring for their grandchildren. Before connecting with One Horizon they worked in fields to feed their families, but now they are successful pig or chicken farmers, thanks to our programs that change lives and the global community of travellers who participate with us.

A wonderful, heartwarming experience... We met three lovely grandmothers, visited their tiny farms and had a home hosted lunch. It was an amazing experience to hear these women's stories, share in meaningful conversation and even sing and dance with them.
We had the best time meeting Beatrice and Helen - it was one of the most amazing and memorable experiences we had in Africa and I cannot believe how lucky we were to spend so much time with them and hear their stories. Thank you for all the hard work you have done over the years for these families - we saw firsthand how One Horizon has changed their lives and we certainly walked away feeling inspired.
Highly recommended. One Horizon has many projects in Kenya. They do tours to support their projects. I was picked up at my hotel in Nairobi and we drove about a half hour to the pig farm of Rosemary and her family. We sat in her small family room while she talked about how difficult her life had been before One Horizon came to the rescue. They set her up as a pig farmer, providing the pigs and the feed as well as the contract with hotels, etc... I went to Helen's farm as well and visited the school which One Horizon also supports. It was a wonderful day.
