BECOME-A-CITIZNE

All Smiles

Every year we take a two week trip around the country visiting different
mosques and schools. I learn ten times more about my country and the world
on these trips than I can ever learn sitting in a classroom.

The ice cream was fantastic. They only had one flavor today. I just wish I could have ice cream everyday.

It’s the Journey, Not the Destination

That’s not a common site. I have no idea where he came from or where he is going or why he is here in the middle of Nairobi. I assume he knows where he is going.

Teaching

The passing of knowledge to our children is one of our most important
responsibilities. For so many, a good education is their best hope.

Exhausted

I work fourteen hours a day. It is so hot. If I’m am very lucky I go home with
enough money for a meal for all the family or at least my children. Sometimes
when sales are bad, there is no meal. Its hard to keep up the energy.

I moved from a village about 600km east of here. This is the only job I could find. I thought it would be a temporary job, but eight years later I’m still doing the same thing. Next year I’ll finally have saved up enough money to go home and visit my parents and brothers for a few days.

Here a single cut fresh flower can make all the difference. I can never get enough
of them.

I love the feel of the earth and mud under my feet. I walk without shoes every opportunity I get. I find that I’m most connected to the earth when I can actually feel it with my feet.
