Stories from the Field
“We are so proud of the wall that we built! We also built amazing memories that will change our lives forever. As a family we reconnected with the importance of community and helping others. Our daughters gained the perspective we had hoped and more. An added benefit was also connecting as a family sharing each amazing moment together, the technology free days and the simple pleasure of enjoying every meal together as a family. We felt safe the entire time. We also felt spoiled as every member of the ME to WE team treated us like royalty.”Chinnery family
“All the way on the flights home, we talked about the ways we as a family (and individually) we can continue to keep this experience alive in our minds and hearts and how we are going to continue to keep this great effort moving forward and maintain momentum to promote change.”Frank Family
“The women’s circle is an amazing opportunity to understand a new culture. It’s an exchange between women from different countries to discuss social issues and women’s rights—an open conversation that bridges cultures.”Mrs Bhagwati Menaria

"My greatest motivation has always been the transformation I see in the communities we serve and especially seeing a mama or baba earning enough money to support their families. This year, many wageni (guests) interacted with our Village Savings and Loan Association (VSLA) group at Emori Joi. While these interactions would happen within less than an hour, the impact on the motivation of the group is unbelievable. To quote one member, 'I can't believe that people who have supported us so much still find time to travel miles and miles and come and make a rungu with me... I am very honoured."Daniel Turanta

"The sight of women carrying water cans long distances was common in our community years ago. After brainstorming solutions to improve access to water with trip participants, we came up with innovative ideas to help these women. The experience has made me feel strong enough to face challenging situations that come along in my personal life. I feel honoured and appreciated knowing I am part of the team that contributed to improving water access in the community."Timothy Mwangi
Free The Children Water and Sanitation Coordinator, Kenya
“This trip was powerful. We met amazing people, young and old, that shared the common traits of a smile on their face and a drive to lift themselves up through hard work and education. Optimism for their children’s lives and appreciation for the work of Free The Children its staff and volunteers exuded everywhere we went. Dance, song and friendly roadside wave kept smiles on our faces.”Stuart McLaughlin
