We mentor and counsel tiny humans through their personal development, harnessing their character, values and vision. We instill the importance of community engagement. We are a global village.  

 

We all have a story; we are giving our youth the opportunity to write their own.

I AM HESHIMA:

Ten years in the making

A HISTORY

Ten years ago, I took a journey that would forever change the course of my life. 

 

I was 19 years old, I got on a plane and went to Kenya for what was meant to be a 3 month contract teaching English in an orphanage with a big international organisation. After paying way too much $ to volunteer, with no one to pick me up at the airport for hours, being dropped off at a someone's house in a slum with no water, food or blankets, I realized very quickly that I fell into a lucrative voluntourism trap.

 

After that 3 month stint, I went back for another 7 months, leading to the unexpected creation of a team and the birth of I am Heshima.
