Ambassador Coordinator Invitation
Last year I had the honor of coordinating a 25-person global Journey to Kenya. We so enjoyed our warm-hearted and generous Kenyan hosts, and I cannot wait to visit my many new Kenyan friends again this year.
As the Ambassador Coordinator for the Friendship Force “Jewels of Kenya” Journey, I’d like to offer you the opportunity to join us on this adventure this October.

Come with me to experience Kenya from the palm tree lined tropics of Mombasa beside the Indian Ocean, to the chilly elevations at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro, and from the flamingo-lined shores of Lake Nakuru to the dry, wild savannas of the Masai Mara, home to The Big Five.

You’ll marvel at the care given to the orphaned baby elephants and endangered Rothschild giraffes at the sanctuaries in the Karen [Blixen] District of Nairobi. We will enjoy seeing traditional tribal dwellings and authentic dances performed at Bomas of Kenya. Most reviewers agree that Kenya is a go-to place for African wild animal safaris. Bring your binoculars and camera for your safari through four very different eco-zones, including the two most-visited national parks in Kenya.
The humanitarian component of our program includes bringing much-needed medical supplies to a clinic in a poverty-stricken section of the big city.  Also, we will bring educational materials and foodstuffs to needy children at the SOS orphanage.

Last year our ambassadors hailed from Canada, India, and the USA. I hope that this year we can share the wonders of Kenya with ambassadors from Asia, the South Pacific, South America, and Europe as well.

In friendship,
