I have had many people come into my life, they have added value to me and that has been an incredible blessing to me.
I am a frequent traveler, I have traveled to over 35 countries speaking and teaching leadership. One of my most beloved place to visit is Camp Ohana Village. This remote village located in Western Kenya is a place of pure love and full of genuine happiness. Seeing the happy faces of the children at Camp Ohana Village is such a delight. Often people say that these children are so blessed because Camp Ohana Foundation strives alleviate their plight. I do not see it that way. I believe that we are more blessed and fortunate to have the privilege of adding value and impacting the lives of these wonderful children.
The children at Camp Ohana Village opened my eyes to finding innate happiness in the simplicity of life. I never appreciated the value of water not until I saw how happy the children were when we sank the first well in the village. It was sheer joy to see their faces lit up and a feeling of accomplishment to know that these children now had access to clean safe drinking water.
The excitement in the children’s hearts when we built at Camp Ohana Village the first children’s library in Kenya. It was fulfilling to see the eagerness to learn and the quest for knowledge that each child has. The outpouring of emotions and the moments that take your breathe away at Camp Ohana Village are my treasures. Real treasures that will last a lifetime.
My mission with Camp Ohana Foundation is a blessing to me. The work we have done has inspired us to be better, to reach deep into our hearts and pockets and help those who need us, to appreciate life more and to experience joy not from what is temporal but from what is innate.
The work we are doing at Camp Ohana Village is far from over. Still a long long way to go. It is a continuous process. I really encourage you to join and support us in this mission. Truly, this is an experience you will never forget.
