Gail went to Kenya in February 2016 and was part of a great group of people. Below is a poem written by Gail about her experience.

My time with the Younite project

Was both amazing and sad

Could not believe

living could be this hard

Yet the children we met

We’re so full of glee

And just so happy to play with my friends and me

 

With ragged clothes and so little to eat

Some with no shoes to cover their feet

No cries were heard when they got hurt

They just got up and  brushed off the dirt.

 

So talented and happy they gave us so much

With their singing and our welcome

Our hearts were touched

They wanted to learn and loved to play

And were all sad to leave school at the end of the day

 

Ten great friends I made along the way

We bonded while we painted, taught, cooked and played

Many different skills we put in the pot

Which made us a rather awesome lot!!

 

I sponsored Virginie to help her on her way

To a successful life, hopefully one day

So she can take her family out of the slums

And maybe for once, have full tums.

 

So my advice to you is too give it a try

Sign up for a trip, although it will make you cry

You won’t regret it, this I can guarantee

Then you can spread the message,

Just like me!!!
