Photostory: Of Songs and Dance in the Slums

Had the funniest time when my friend James (who also works at the school I'm teaching music at in Kibera) took me to visit his family further into the slum. I decided to whip out my uke and play a song for his sisters, but before we knew it, all the kids in the area were congregated out the door singing praise songs with us. Well you know what, I was like, who cares if we don't have space, we'll just squeeze outside in between the huts and have a dance and jam altogether!

The Difference

Wayfarers walk by faith and dream with eyes wide open. Living simply, they go places, break barriers, embrace people, and build bridges. They're cool if things go wrong; it's the journey that counts. They like being on their own, but love the company of like-minded people anytime! Wayfarers love to hang with the locals, make music in unusual places, and share stories. They're creative about ways to touch the world both on the home turf and on the road. Wayfarers are on the life-long odyssey of discovery with hearts anchored in Faith, Hope and Love.

About the Author

Hello, I'm Janielle. I’m a muso based in Melbourne. Join me on my quest to embrace people of peace in tough places, inspire creative education where none exists, spark spiritual conversations that challenge the status quo, and collaborate with like-minded young people to catalyze a mission of reconciliation through acts of justice, truth and compassion among the young & free. Being a nomad at heart, I find ‘home’ when I stay with people on the ground, encounter the culture & discover what life's like for others.
