For a few months I have been planning a humanitarian trip to Kenya, Africa with an organization called 100 Humanitarians International. The concept of 100 Humanitarians is, “What is the power of 100 people working on any project in the world to create positive change?“
You can check out their website at https://www.100humanitarians.org
It is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization that is non-denominational and non-political. Their focus is economic development, self-reliance, and sustainability in families. The team is all volunteer!
Since 2015, 100 Humanitarians has led 16 expeditions with 200 people, including 30 children! They have helped over 100 families with economic development and self-reliance training, including teaching skills such as gardening, water catchment and filtration, and hygiene.
They also supported and launched two Days for Girls Enterprises, to provide over 4000 reusable feminine hygiene kits that keep girls in school for 3 years.
To go with them to Kenya will be a dream come true!
Part of our experience is to share our experience with friends and family, and give them the opportunity to help with the projects that we will be implementing. Our BIG projects will be to build two 4 stall latrines with sinks for handwashing, host a reusable feminine hygiene workshop for 100 girls, and build 20 garden tower systems for families.
To do this, we need your help! I am asking for a donation of $25 or more to make these projects a reality for these communities. Every dollar goes to the projects, and not my trip costs. Will you help?

This year, I am going on the Share the Love 2020 expedition and our trip projects will help with the overall objectives for the organization, which includes four areas:
1. Women’s Initiatives – including hosting hygiene workshops for girls in school, and teaching sewing and entrepreneurship
2. Youth Education – helping to support 27 students in school this year
3. Family Mentoring – building 20 garden tower systems that include clean water, building two latrine pits and washrooms to improve community hygiene, and donating goats to five families to provide milk.
4. Training and Cultural Centers – helping to build washrooms at the Emparnat Cultural Centre, and painting the Nkareta Training and Sewing Center.
It’s a huge endeavor that will make a huge difference! Will you help me? My personal goal is to raise $500 – $1000 to help support these projects, and again, 100% of your donation will go towards the project and not towards my expedition costs. The recommended donation is $25 or more.
There are several ways to donate and it is a tax deduction for you. 100 Humanitarians will send you a receipt. Just put in the note that the donation is for my fundraising goals.
