Its been more than two weeks since I came home from Kenya and still I sit at the keyboard, wondering about the story I want to write and waiting for the words to come. It was an extraordinary experience in every way, and since I am struggling to put the whole trip into words, I'll just start with some of my favorite photos from the trip and let the words come in their own good time.
Namelok, a Maasai village in the Amboseli area of Kenya, the site of a borehole drilling project that brought water to an otherwise dry village.
One of the hundreds of Maasai children I photographed over the course of a week.
Members of the Women's Beading Group, crowded into a Land Rover after a long day of beading, a fair-trade women's empowerment enterprise funded and supported by A Voice is Heard.
Water gushing from the ground in a place that was previously dry. A miracle, in the words of the village leaders.
This isn't the last you will see and hear of my trip to Kenya. I am going to have a lot more to say, and more photos to share, over the coming days and weeks. Carmen has also invited me to join forces with her in a more formal capacity, as a board member of A Voice is Heard, so you'll be hearing a lot more from me in coming days and years, on behalf of A Voice is Heard.
