The Documentary Adventure Continues!


Our current trip to Kenya is completely covered, thanks to all of our amazingly generous donors! We're continuing to accept donations towards the continuation of the project, and our next trip.

Meet Chris, Cayley and Ashley! A team of three heading to Nakuru, Kenya to continue work on a documentary film project. 

In late February, 2020, we'll leave for Kenya. We're planning to travel with a small missionary team who will be conducting pastor training for an organization called Global Training Network. While the team conducts the training, Chris and Ashley will be focused on building relationships and interviewing Kenyans who are willing to share their stories around the subject of orphan care. Cayley will be splitting her time between helping with the documentary and participating with the rest of the team. We'll return in mid March, making our trip just about 3 weeks including travel time. 

All the money we raise here will go towards covering our travel expenses. Our flights will cost us each about $1,000. Lodging, food, and everyday travel expenses comes out to $160 a day per person.

The adventure began in the Fall of 2018, when Ashley was given the opportunity to accompany Greg's team in February 2019 as their team videographer/photographer and explore the subject of orphan care in Kenya. After researching the subject, and hearing first hand accounts of negative experiences at the hand of the orphanage model of orphan care; Ashley was excited to get involved and explore the topic in Kenya. The trip was AMAZING, and a great start to the project. But it was exactly that; a start. In order to understand the diverse subject well enough to create a documentary, this adventure will need to include multiple trips, not just to Africa, but hopefully other parts of the globe. And so... it's time to go back!

The subject of orphan care world wide is obviously a massive topic. To narrow it down a little; we're specifically exploring how growing up within the walls of an orphanage effects the lives of the children. How it equips them to take on the world as an adult, and how that compares to the lives of children who are raised by parents, no matter the income level of the family. The current idea is to explore the subject as written about by Keith McFarland and Philip Darke in their book, 'In Pursuit of Orphan Excellence'.
