Some songs just inspire me – whether that be to head out for distant horizons or just to continue trying to do something good in this world. Here are ten of my favourites (plus a couple that I just couldn’t leave out).
The war rages on in Somalia. Refugees flee through the forest and across the border into Kenya, where they are confined to camps. Do they still have hope? Is life what they imagined when they made the decision to leave? I met with a Somali refugee and heard his story. This is a place of paradise beaches and luxury hotels, but something darker lurks beneath the surface.
Today I have departed Kenya once again. I’m already desperate to return. My heart beats to an African drum…I’m not really going home.
Time to tell some of the individual stories from the children of Future Stars. All of the children have amazing tales to tell. Whilst often tragic, there is also so much hope and so much faith. It is the stories of the children that have the power to make me cry and I refuse to be ashamed of that. Here are the stories of Mourine, Judis, and Khamis Abdi. Every child has a story to tell – why not become part of the next chapter?
