YOU CAN SERVE TO EMPOWER.
The immense suffering in our world today often leaves us with an overwhelming sense of powerlessness, with the thought of "how can I, one person, even begin to make a real difference?"
As a grassroots organization with seriously humble beginnings, we urge you to never underestimate your impact as an individual. The mainstay of our achievement as an organization was simply our belief that we, everyday people, could effect real change in our community.
We invite you (yes, you) to empower yourself by empowering others. Join us in Kenya on an all-inclusive African Safari Impact Trip and experience the incredible African wildlife while changing the lives of Africa's people.

Meet Jane - a single mother and devoted grandmother who lives in Ndibai, Kenya. Ndibai is dry, hot area that has minimal opportunities to grow crops due to the incessant drought. Jane takes care of her son, John, as well as her granddaughter Jenny. Her mother and extended family also rely on her to keep them afloat.
When we began working with Jane and creating her empowerment plan, we had to consider the family members that depended on Jane as well. She had previously faced social ridicule for her economic despair, and for being a single mother whose husband deserted her.
After constructing a permanent residence for Jane and sponsoring her son John's education for several years, S.E.A. purchased the land plot for Jane, giving her the rare opportunity to be a female land owner (1/8 acre of land is worth approximately $500-1000 USD in that area).
When all was said and done, S.E.A. was able to build Jane a real home, along with a clean water tank, chicken coop, goats, and crops. As a result of this intervention, Jane is well on her way to becoming a successful female business owner and providing for herself, her children, grandchildren, and extended family.
Her son, John, has attended school since kindergarten and is now attending a boys boarding school in Naivasha. John's education means everything - it changes the landscape and legacy of his family, and will break the cycle of poverty for future generations.
Jane and S.E.A.'s Rob Bowers as they finalize the purchase of Jane's plot of fertile land, where she will go on to plant and harvest crops to sell and provide for her family.
