"I arrived here with no expectations at all, and it was the first time I was in Africa. People in Lamu seemed charming to me and Afrikable’s work in the island is of great value for the women involved in the project. In some cases it is even a life-changing experience for them and their children: it offers them security and economic resources, so they can leave their husband if he doesn’t treat them well, and avoid arrange the marriage of their teenage daughters just because they lack the resources to support them.

For me, it has been a very rewarding experience and I carry home the memory of the smiles and the joy that children, and people from Lamu at large, transmitted."
