This is an amazing cultural experience. The organization ONE HORIZON has a very worthwhile effort to give Kenyan grandmas a chance to learn a skill that should allow them the opportunity at supporting, feeding and educating their grandchildren. They are happy learning business skills and proud to share their life stories.
I had an amazing day. I learned a lot about the Masai and hearing (our host's) story was moving. I'm so glad I had the pleasure of spending time with her and her family.
