Better Lives Foundation (BLF) Sponsored Kenya Safari Challenge for the needy in Sierra Leone

Enjoy nature at its best

Supporters of Better Lives Foundation will embark on a unique fund raising Kenya Safari Challenge from the 3rd September to the 15th September 2011. The event will include 4 different Safaris in the Masai Mara, 2 Game drives at Lake Nakuru, 3 Days of voluntary work with local charities in Mombasa, gifting at least 2 cataract operations and 3 Nights R & R at the Sarova Whitesands Hotel in Mombasa.

The challenge is to raise awareness and money for our projects in aid of the less well off and war afflicted people of Sierra Leone.

The challenge promises to be a life changing experience for all the supporters.

Comments from previous supporters from our events:

“To see people working tirelessly everyday and to have the chance to not just watch but to help and become one of those people. The people that give their patients sight again, takes away their pain, rehabilitates people so they can walk again so they can raise their children to be health people. It was, not to be cliché, inspiring!! It’s confirmed my belief’s in a way all that work experience, reading around and lectures has never done before. Even more than working with the kids at the Cambodian Orphan Fund back in July.” – Vidya

“The Better Lives Foundation trip to Sierra Leone in November 2010 was truly a remarkable experience. Now that I have gone through the process of planning, participating, and reflecting on the experience, I am confident that this volunteering trip has helped me develop a sense of independence and self-confidence that will motivate me to help others for the rest of my life.” –

Participants have the opportunity to test their stamina, whilst also raising funds for a very worthwhile cause. The 15 day event will start flying off from Heathrow to Nairobi.
