Very cool! I agree, these happy pictures are much better than the depressing starving children posters that make me want to just look the other way and not care at all. Can you tell us more about your trip – were you working with an organization for the month you were there?

Thanks so much for posting these, it really brightened my day. I feel so sad when I think about the state of some parts of the world and these pictures have helped me to know that there is still happiness in these parts of the world despite their circumstances.

The picture of you standing next to the rock, the child in the yellow bottoms and blue top is so so cute. They’re all so cute!! Thanks again.

Love!!! My cousin works off the coast of West Africa quite often (on a rig obviously), he always loves his time “on-shore” there with the amazing people he meets. Between him, and one of my best friends, who lives in South Africa, it is all I can do not to just hop on a flight. (oh…and the fact that I am lacking in funds…sigh).

 It has always been a dream of mine of visit Kenya, and other countries in Africa…someday I hope…thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures with us!

Thanks so much for sharing these! I have a special place in my heart for the entire continent, but especially South Africa.The shots of laughing kids are always my faves.

Haven’t been to DRC yet, but I imagine that it would be heartbreaking in terms of the excessive violence against women there. I do a lot of work with women’s rights and human trafficking issues, and DRC is almost always at the epicenter. πŸ™

Thanks for sharing these photos! They’re so great.

Every year I work closely with a teacher in Uganda. Our classes collaborate in activities, Skype chats, and learning experiences in general.

I hope that one day my husband and I can visit him, his family, and his school. πŸ™‚
