Today, you’ll meet an inspiring grandmother and help end her long life of poverty when you give her a piglet or 25 chicks to help her start her own farm. The emotion is tangible when you hand this generosity over: it is a moment that will truly change her life forever. In return, she’ll share personal experiences, moments, and life stories full of courage, hope, and determination that are sure to warm your soul.

Go Granny Go! promises to be a day full of fun and insights as the grandmothers you meet invite you in to share in their family and farming activities. It’s a rare chance to spend a day in the life of an extended rural Kenyan family, immersing yourself in our rich culture and gaining a deeper understanding of the world around you.

 

1. The first stop is at a local market so you can choose your gift: a piglet or 25 chickens. You’ll also see some incredible sights such as donkey-drawn carts and goat herds, as locals go about their day.

2. Continue your journey through the magnificent countryside, as you head towards the home of the grandmother you’re visiting. At her home, the entire community will have gathered to give you and your piglet/chicks a true Kenyan welcome!

3. This is the life changing moment when you present this incredible woman with her gift: one that, in just a few short months, will allow her to have a small farming business and for the first time ever, a bank account.

4. What you do after this is up to you. You can choose to settle down for a sweet cup of tea and listen to the stories of her incredible life’s journey, or you can help her prepare a traditional Kenyan lunch! Another option is to visit neighboring women who are also part of One Horizon’s farming program.

5. Return from granny’s farm and enjoy dinner at the famous Carnivore Restaurant.
