I am disturbing the chronology of events in favor of telling you a little more now about the IDP camp and the youth mentoring program. I have collected stories from mothers, fathers, young sisters, older brothers – all of which I want to share with you. I am, however, leaving most every form of technology for about a month, traveling to southern Kenya where I’ll be living and working with the Masai and the wonderful Kakenya Ntaiya. I promise to reconnect intermittently during this time, and I’ll slip back into the proper order of events as soon as possible – returning to Nakuru and the youth there, and revisiting the camp when I’ve sewn up the holes in my notes. Before I go, I wanted to share with you an interview from the camp, with fifteen year-old Beatrice. I’ve left the interview bare and without much besides her voice and the subtitles – this choice seemed natural, as her story is enough.
Beatrice Wangoi talks about her life at Lelmolok IDP Camp and how Ripe for Harvest’s Youth Mentoring Program has affected her life.
