Spare Day In Nairobi? Go Granny Go!
A unique African Safari as you help a Kenyan grandma start a farm … An amazing program helping grandmas navigate their way out of poverty
Go Granny Go! is an incredible one day safari to the heart of Kenya as we visit Kenyan farmlands on the outskirts of Nairobi.
Here you’ll meet inspiring grandmas whose lives are being changed forever because of their involvement in One Horizon’s pig and chicken farming programs. It takes just under a year for a grandma’s new farm to become sustainable, and her life to turn around, including having her first-ever bank account!
The grandmas will share experiences, moments and stories that will stay with you forever. And you may be surprised by village life. With no income, alone and undernourished, most of the grandmas have suffered from boredom, hunger, anxiety and depression. But over time, with their involvement in our peer support and biogas programs as well as the daily work on their farms, there is a change in the grandmas from despair to hope. They’ll invite you to join in their daily routine, from helping with the pigs and cooking a traditional meal to singing and dancing the day away.
