Arrive’s philosophy is: unlocking potential by empowerment through opportunity. We’ve established the Light Home of Hope, our local partner organization, to help the most vulnerable children. At the Light Home of Hope, children learn skills that will prepare them for a successful and fulfilling future. . . . #haveyouarrived #arrivekenya #arriveinkenya #school #education #empowerment #success #future

To us, a healthy diet is a priority to keep our kids strong, focused and happy. The children at @arriveinkenya do not go a day without 3 balanced meals. Pictured is one of our older boys Kegode helping prepare some fresh kale from our very own shamba (garden) to cook up. . . . #health #diet #balance #foodislife #arriveinkenya #haveyouarrived #gardening #sustainableliving #sustainablegarden #food #sustainablity #kale #kenya #africa

Meet Irene. From a tough upbringing near a small town called Miuru, she found her way to us and now excels at our home and at school (in 7th grade). She loves to jump rope and ride bicycles. When she isn’t studying you can find her helping to take care of the guinea pigs. Irene says she loves living here because she has the opportunity to help herself through education. . . #haveyouarrived #shedecides #shedecideskenya #nimeamua

You know what they say - home is where you can look out over the #GreatRiftValley under a blue sky and be sure where your next meal will come from. Our kids - once the most impoverished, now the most empowered - are #home . . . #haveyouarrived #arrivekenya #arriveinkenya #arrive #empower #hope #educate #kenya #africa #bluesky
Many people ask if our kids workout or go to a gym. The reality is *just living* in rural sub-Saharan Africa is a workout. The “simple” task of getting drinking water includes walking miles away to fetch water from a deep well to bring back on your head - shown here by Noella, one of our 6th graders. For her, its a necessary and daily chore. For other people around the 🌎 its a tricep, trap, back, neck, and leg workout... everday. . . . . #hope #kenya #haveyouarrived #arrivekenya #arriveinkenya #africa #empower #nomorestreetkids #water #cleanwater #backandbiceps #tricepsworkout
