A Better World
In March of 2007 we were blessed as a family and had the opportunity to take part in the 'A Better World' humanitarian voyage. We spent 17 unforgettable days in Kenya. We took part in eight safaris seeing breathtaking and up close encounters with lions, elephants, cheetahs, hyenas and more. We also traveled around Kenya monitoring and assessing 'A Better World' projects.
We spent time in an orphanage; eight schools; were part of four medical clinics; four eye clinics; opened up nurseries on the Island of Lamu off the Indian Ocean; monitored projects for a deaf school, provided infrastructure to a physically handicapped school, plus if that was not enough to burst our souls we stayed in amazing places and experienced the beautiful people and culture of Africa in ways that never would have been possible if we had gone on a trip on our own.
It was a life changing experience for my family. Our oldest daughter returned in 2007 and spent four months living in an orphanage taking care of babies. Our youngest daughters are after us to take them back so they can do more. Sandi & I have decided to make a concentrated effort to return to Kenya as often as we are able to so we can continue to help with projects already underway and to assess and initiate new projects be they school rooms, water wells, or whatever that particular village or community needs.
Please give us a call or an email if you have questions or further interest in making our world 'A Better World'.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
“I believe that each of us has an obligation to level the playing field of life—Schools that have no books, communities without water, and people without access to medical care are not someone else's problem. We all have the capacity to make a difference somewhere. We just have to decide if we have the will to do it.” Mark Grashow—founder of “US-Africa Children’s
