At the end of 2010 I was lucky enough to volunteer for a beautiful organization called African Impact. While I was there I volunteered at schools, taught singing lessons and spent time playing with the children of the local communities in Limuru, Kenya. What I experienced during my time there impacted me greatly. I was so inspired by the hearts of these people. Their spirits were so beautiful and radiant, they were loving, accepting and non- judgmental. The joy they received from pure things such as human connection and a sense of community was so deeply moving to me. They became my teachers, as I taught much less and learned so much more than I could’ve ever imagined. I documented and edited together footage of some of my experiences. If it even crosses your mind to get involved with a charity like African Impact, please do so. I guarantee that it will make a beautiful imprint on your heart as it has done mine. Love Teresa.
