The Adventure

Musafir is a group of people who share the vision of this journey as the life path.

To begin this journey, we are constructing a 70-foot traditional wooden boat in Kipini, Kenya. Once construction is complete, our aim is to reach small settlements on the east coast of Africa where we will develop volunteer projects with the local communities.

The toys were first constructed in the banda and then installed on the school grounds over the course of a couple of nights. The grand opening was celebrated by a ribbon cutting ceremony with school officials, parents, Musafirs and kids present. With the bustani complete,...
