Begin with pickup at your hotel in Nairobi, then travel to a local street market with a guide and small group—for a more personalized experience, participants in this community tour are limited to 12. Pick up the piglets and chicks that local communities will raise as a source of food and income, then travel to Kikuyu and Kayole, two villages on the outskirts of Nairobi.
Learn about the work of a partner organization, One Horizon Africa, and how they’re working to ensure that poor communities have sustainable food sources. Pigs and chickens breed quickly, and can provide cash income along with eggs, chicken meat, and pork, and the United Nations and the World Health Organization consider pig and chicken farming as excellent tools for overcoming malnutrition. Deliver the piglets and chicks from the Nairobi market, then visit a private home to hear local stories about life in the community over cups of tea and coffee.
This tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel in Nairobi.
