1:1 Consulting with Kathrin

“The experience we had with Florence and Gabriel was unique and changed our attitude in so many areas. The idea behind the project is so extensive and diverse that we first needed a few days to understand everything, but then it was much easier to help with full commitment. The project is run by a Kenyan family who have not always had an easy life and yet do everything they can to help others. In the four weeks we were allowed to spend on the beautiful island, we fell in love with the whole family and everyone involved in the project. Life on Mfangano is very simple and without any luxury and seeing that has ultimately brought us further in our life
