DescriptionThis Nairobi tour will whisk you away from your hotel to the rural township of Ngong Hills, where you’ll visit a local community of women who are on a vocational and lifestyle retraining program. These women were once on the streets with their families, but are now participating in a 18-month program to give them the skills they need to build better lives. Over a cup of tea or coffee, you’ll hear their inspiring stories. The women use storytelling as a way to leave the past behind and look forward to the future. You’ll also get to tour the center where the women are learning how to empower their lives and start their own businesses. After a light lunch with the women, take a short trip to the countryside, to an area known as Kiserian, the traditional homeland of the Maasai. Here, you’ll meet one of the graduates from the program who now owns her own home and runs a small business. In the shade of an Acacia tree, your host will give insight into what being a Maasai women means, with all its rituals and obligations. You’ll become immersed in the culture of the Maasai as the host tells her story, partly through traditional verse and song. She will recount her journey from living in open fields with her children to now being fully self-sufficient. While you’re here, you might also catch a glimpse of herds of cows and goats being moved by the Maasai tribesmen. Before you leave, you’ll get to participate in making a traditional Maasai wristband to take home with you as a memory of your day. By the end of the day you’ll have visited two local communities most travelers never get to see. Not only that, but you’ll also get to connect with locals, hear their stories, see how they live and gain a greater understanding of the strength of the Kenyan people.
