“I don’t have a lot of pictures, with me in it, but here’s one from the farmers we visited.” – Emma
Why did you choose to go to Kenya, visiting Borupgaard – and what were your expectations?
I chose to go to Kenya to get a better sense of how much the project actually helped.
My thoughts, expectation and previous experiences with relief organisations made me curious as to how much actually went to the project/purpose I supported. I guess I expected to get insight into a still struggling project – in that it was early on in the launch of the project. To my surprise, the project was well run and they had their fundamentals well underhand.
What impact did it make on you, coming to Kenya, visiting the project?
It meant the world to me. It can be a little abstract to imagine how much of a difference you trying to help really helps in Kenya. I had a unique opportunity to see how Momentum trust actually makes a difference to the farmers and the local community that is the foundation for any relief organisation. Just seeing how Momentum Trust really does make a difference was incredible.
Why do you think our project makes sense?
I love the project, hands down. And I was happy to be able help even after my time as a volunteer i high school. Momentum Trust is a project that makes it possible to easily help others. And at the same time, the project makes incredible progress. Besides, I have seen with my own eyes how much of a difference it makes to the local community.
What touched you the most?
I was very touched to see how open the local community was to us. We were out there, meeting local farmers that are part of the project, and it was amazing how open and welcoming they were. They showed us their fields and told us how much it has meant to them and their family to participate in the project. It was through the locals that I got an insight into how much of a difference Momentum Trust is really making in Kenya.
Do you plan on coming back to work with Momentum Trust in Kenya?
I have wanted to go back for such a long time, visiting Momentum Trust in Kenya again. And as soon as I fit it in between my studies, I’m off!
Where are you studying now?
I am studying HA – Marketing and Brand Management at The University of Southern Denmark, in Odense.
