I always knew I wanted to go on a safari but when I heard about the “make a difference safari” I knew it would be an even more meaningful experience!
I had no idea I would leave a part of my heart in Africa. The trip was wonderful for MANY reasons but it’s even more special to me now that our world is in the midst of a pandemic!
I was supposed to teach the kids something while there and I really struggled with what that would be. I ended up going with a little yoga & a Snapchat lesson. I came across the Snapchat app. on my phone while sitting with the children and I knew they probably had not seen it so I opened the app. & did a “snap” with 1 of the boys, the next thing I knew there were 2 boys & then 3, the group kept getting larger! They kids were saying “do it again…do it again”! The Snap photos turned out amazing and we all laughed until we cried!
I can’t count the number of times I’ve scrolled through my phone looking at those pics. I never knew how much the children there would teach me.
I literally left there crying because I wanted to bring them back with me!
They were the sweetest, most talented and well- behaved kids I have ever been around!! I will go back one day, and I know they once again will teach me more than I ever could have taught them! Their laughs were infectious…I can still hear them each time I scroll through my photos!
I’ll attach a few of my favorites!
Until next time my sweet children …Xoxo ❤️

It was 2008 when my parents asked me to live in UAACC. At that time I was 5 years old. I did not know how to talk I was very scared. But after few days I captured the environment over there in UAACC. In UAACC I lived with other people but always my fellow leaders of tomorrow.
In 2017 I was in from 1 at ngongongare secondary school. In from ii I done my national examination and I got division I when. I entered form iii. UAACC and friends of UAACC decided to shift me to another school known as renea girls secondary school at njiro.
Visiting with the children on two of our trips to Tanzania made our trips complete. One would think the safaris, wild animals, or the food would be top on the list, but, it’s not. The graciousness of our host, whom I respectfully call “Mr. Pete,” and his wife,
Mama Kay asked us to share our words about our experience from the time we lived at the Leaders of Tomorrow Children’s Home. These are my words.
