My friend Bruce said, “Each step I “do- not” take will cost the kids…”
My walk is no longer about me; it’s about “YOU!”…saving one child’s life in Kenya. I do guarantee a good night’s sleep when you click>>> “YES.”
I NEED YOUR SUPPORT! Most of you already said…”YES” now is the time. The secure donation site is ready, to become a part of the “I HELPED TO DO THE IMPOSSIBLE” gang, Click>>>> HERE.
Here is the best part; you will see how and why it will work! YOU are now a part of “Saving a child’s life in Kenya” If you choose, you can watch these children over the years grow and become a part of changing this globe into a world full of peace, starting with one little child!
These kids want to be a part of your life also!
The children will know you! At the entrance to the orphanage will be a plaque with your name on it. This is for the people who make a donation of $100 or more. Don’t worry, for the other donations, we need you also, and you will get a HUGE hug from me and will become a member of our “SEE THE KIDS GROW” Society.
The Plaque heading will read…”I HELPED TO DO THE IMPOSSIBLE!”
Remember 100% of all money we received from my walk goes to the kids.

I am writing to you on behalf of all the children and family members here at Our Home Nakuru to wish you the best of luck on ‘el Camino’ and to send our gratitude to you for your dedication and support to others.
As a fellow pilgrim, having once completed el Camino myself, I like to think I understand somewhat the undertaking you are about to embark on. Although, that said, I did the journey on a bike with a reasonable amount of supplies and in a mere 10 days – nothing compared to the 484-mile walk that you have ahead of you with no money and virtually no belongings. This truly must be the greatest feat you – and a lot of others – have ever undertaken.
Without wanting to repeat myself too much, I cannot express enough what your pilgrimage means here in Kenya. You can be sure that all the family members at Our Home Nakuru – even the sheep – are rooting for you as you carry out your journey. Sadly, every child in our family has become one of our family because they were subject to some of the most severe forms of abuse or neglect by relatives or misfortune. They are now living comfortable lives away from fear and can focus on what’s important to a child: education and play! Because of the help of people like yourself, these children have been given a fresh start in life, a new beginning.
Now, at Our Home Nakuru, we believe this is still not enough; for a child to be truly given a new life they need to be reunited with their families – every child needs a mother and a father. So, we are working hard to address the issues that have forced these kids into destitution with the hope of, one day, reunited the children with their families to lead happy, fulfilled lives in their own families – where they belong. With the help of your pledge to raise $5000, we will be able to convert this dream into reality for two of our children – Maureen and Alex.
This money will be enough to ensure sustained professional medical and social support to their mother for the next three years whilst also leaving enough to invest in a farming project. With a few acres of fertile land, Maureen and Alex’s family will be capable to put their traditional farming skills to use and provide enough income to support Maureen and Alex whilst keeping them in school. Without your help, the family would never have this opportunity and at no time be able to protect their own children from abuse and neglect, meaning the kids would be forever distanced from their loved ones.
Here’s wishing you all the best for your challenge, and I hope it brings you comfort on some of the long Iberian nights knowing that we, in Kenya, are urging you on with every step towards your destination on the steps of Santiago Cathedral.
(Our Home Nakuru, Managing Director)
