A Student’s Perspective

One month ago, our group of 14 students and 5 teachers journeyed to Kenya for two weeks. We anticipated a rough schedule of what was to come with simultaneous feelings of excitement and nerves, but we left with a much greater appreciation and experience than expected.

The beginning of the trip consisted of the exploration of the Masai Mara with numerous game drives, seeing an amazing array of animals. Our three drivers were full of so much knowledge, knowing the Mara like the back of their hand. We saw everything from lions, elephants, giraffes, hyenas, baboons, antelopes, wildebeest, hippos, a cheetah, and more. It was unbelievable.

The second half of the trip took place in the Shompole community at the Olioka school. With the collaboration of two other schools, Ensworth has worked on the construction of a dining hall. We continued the project with five days of work, building tables and benches, plastering walls, and digging a hole for a water cistern. It was more arduous than we expected, but well worth the sweat. We were able to be a part of the dining hall dedication ceremony, which was so special to hear the school’s appreciation of not only our hard work, but of the memorable relationships that have been made over the years. The kindness and happiness of the people we met and bonded with were endless, making such an immense influence on us. The whole experience was truly amazing and one to remember forever.
