Sometimes we Know it in the Heart

Is this not relly a beautiful flag? Now i want to imagine what message this flag in a heart conveys. How lovely it would be at the centre of a compass,showing the many directions love can reach out .Then each country chapter would have such a flag to symbolise loyalty,patriotism love.

Obama's Speech:Let Children Get The Inspiration

What the heck of this was 'to allow /not to air the “Obamaspeech” to schools about? Denial of basic freedoms like those of listening and participation only plays reverse psychology. Someone needed schooling about this.

Some food for thought, I must have read somewhere that rules are not valid because the senate passed them, or because heroes played by them, or because God pronounced them through Moses or Mohammed; they are valid only if and when… Continue

Connecting with peers

As a wildlife biologist and someone whose favorite animal is the elephant, and still is I might add, I have always wanted to visit Africa. However, I didn’t want to make the journey until I had a greater purpose than merely being a tourist. Some countries it seems like being a tourist is sufficient, but I never felt that about going to Africa.



Early in 2009, I wondered if there was a Teachers Without Borders, like other ‘Without Borders’ organizations, so I went online to check it… Continue

"...with tears welling up in his eyes."

It was the last day of workshops at Utumishi Academy in the Naivasha district and one of our Kenyan facilitators sat in front of me with tears welling up in his eyes. This was a teacher who was part of the workshops last year, and this year worked with us, teachers from North America, as a facilitator. He is an excellent teacher and a valuable member of the team. It would be difficult for us to go our separate ways.



Last year’s experience in the Naivasha district was a wonderful one.… Continue

volunteer opportunities overseas in developing countries

While helping my daughter research Gap Year volunteer opportunities overseas, I've become amazed at the different opportunities by a seeming multitude of groups and organizations. I've was also surprised at the cost to be a volunteer. The six week trip will cost her many thousands of dollars. There does seem to be a wide range of costs, however. I've been subscribing for awhile to goabroad.com and these regular newsletters and described a host of volunteer as well as internship and student… Continue

Reflections on Kenya II

This was my second trip to Kenya with TWB Canada. The first

trip was veiled with my own romantic notions of Africa which is so

often the case when visiting countries about which you’ve already seen

hundreds of images and movies. These clichés float around your head

interfering with what you’re actually seeing. I felt a little wiser

this time, a little more truthful in accepting what I was seeing.



If idealism propelled me last year, it was inquiry that guided… Continue
