A Note from the Founder

My name is Michelle Stark. When I went to Kenya for the first time in 2005, I worked 3 jobs, 7 days a week to make ends meet for myself and my 18 year old son. When my parents approached me 2 years before that to take my son and me with them on a trip to Africa, my heart was filled with the kind of joy I hadn't known for quite some time. My father wanted his family to be there together with him, to help celebrate his 70th birthday. Africa had been their destination of choice for years and still is. They go often. I heard stories from their friends who'd gone with them and seen their photographs which filled my eyes with wonder! Now, unbelievably, I would finally experience this first hand!
