2014 Accomlishments...

June 2014: Our second trip this year! Our time in Amboseli, Kisumu, and Bondo were full of such amazing people and because of your donations you have changed their world forever - for the better!

We loved meeting the Masai women who craft the recycled paper beads we use for our bracelet program. Our volunteer teachers were very effective in all 3 of their teacher trainings and were a valuable part of our educational program. In all we were able to distribute 200 water filters capable of filtering 200 million gallons of #cleanwater for 5,000 people for life along with important sanitation training.

We distributed beautiful pillowcase dresses to girls in the rescue and orphan programs sewed by some fabulous volunteers. We also shared countless donations of clothes, vitamins, shoes, educational materials, and so much more with our partners! We continued to pour into the music program we started adding several more instruments and watched some great performances by the students. We painted the playground in fun colors!

We took several days to serve in the slums and worked with CARE for AIDS clients and many others as we passed out food, encouragement, and hope! Over 15 schools were recipients of water filters which will ensure 1000's of students will never have to deal with water borne disease at school again! We were interviewed by the local newspaper and radio stations and got to share the story of Just One: Africa serving in Kenya.

We were able to rescue 4 abandoned children from the Obunga slums, providing a much needed bath, medicine, clean clothes, food, and lots of love. They are now being cared for at the orphanage. We also sponsored a medical clinic in a slum fishing village for a community that was in desperate need of malaria meds and other medicine.

We loved on our orphans and spent quality time with them letting them know they are important, valuable and loved. We may not be able to change the whole world but we can change the world for some and that is what we will continue to do - JUST ONE at a time!

There was many more opportunities our team had to serve and partner with our local leaders but we wanted to give you a snap shot of our time there. Enjoy all the pictures and remind yourself #iamone because together we have changed the world!

What if?

Just One Africa partners with local leaders to create sustainable solutions for vulnerable children and the clean water crisis.

The heart of Just One is to help orphans and widows lead self-sustaining lives by helping provide them with the basic necessities of life: food, water, clothing, shelter and education. These are things that are easily accessible to most of us, but not to many orphans and widows in some parts of the world.

Just as importantly, we also strive to provide them with hope — in the midst of what often appear to be hopeless situations.

Just One was birthed out of a visit by the founders to Kenya in 2012. Our hearts became burdened with a love for this country and a compassion for these people. We couldn’t just return to our comfortable lives, knowing that the people we had met and grown to love were struggling simply to survive. So we thought, "What if?" Read More
