I spent two months in East Africa in 2010, financed by a 3-week voluntourism safari I packaged and sold to people in my VisionForce community. I spent time in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania, and I’ve included some videos from our time in Kenya below. You can read more about my 2010 East Africa adventures in my ebook, Drum Beat of the Visionary Troubadour.
We met a very passionary and visionary gardener named Hillary, who took us on tours of the garden projects he’d organized for a church and our friend’s school. This is a short clip of Hillary showing us around.
When I visited Kenya in 2006, I met the Kenyan founder of a tech school for poor Kenyan youth, and he volunteered scholarships to two of the students we taught in 2006, plus a couple of Masai youth. The Masai have a reputation of proudly preserving their native tribal culture, and are one of the last tribes in Africa to continue wearing the colors of their tribe and living how they’ve lived for thousands of years. In 2010 we got to meet the two young Masai men, who received the scholarship. They invited us to their village to meet their parents and experience their way of life. Upon arriving the Masai women sang for us, the men danced, and then they slaughtered a goat in our honor. Below is a clip of the women singing.

One of our stops in the first week of our safari was an orphanage, which cared for children orphaned by aids, many of whom had aids, and other children who had no one to care for them. I fell in love with one of the little girls named My good friend and visionary musician Keith gathered the children for some singing.
