In the Summer, we all think of breaking away from the everyday engagements of our professional work or studies. We desire engaging in relaxing activities and spending time with a people who energize and encourage us to be better. That is why; we choose travelling amongst other things to do. Well, here is an opportunity to consider for your break away this summer and Travel for Empowerment .
This summer Project Africa has organized a work camp for women who want to travel to Kenya for cultural exchange, safari and above all to share skills and experiences with women in rural Kenya. We have learnt from our Rafiki Club that the power of friendship lights up a fire in us as women. The fire to pursue our dreams and aspirations when we collectively share experiences and be each other’s source of encouragement.
It is for this reason that we welcome women from all over the world to consider travelling for the purpose of empowerment. You too can be part of this empowering journey by participating in PROJECT AFRICA SUMMER WORK CAMP
