Kenya

In February 2015, I landed in Kenya and lived with the Kamau family as well as at a volunteer-house in Jamhuri later on, right beside the infamous Kibera slum. I got the chance to run music workshops with amazing young people in various schools in Kibera, Kabiria and Kantafu. I met the inspiring founder of Spur Afrika, Patrick Achola. I explored Nairobi National Park, traveled by 9-hour bus to the mesmerizing coast of Mombasa, and also found time to bus to Tanzania in between! I'm definitely returning to this side of East Africa for music, missions and more adventuring in the future. Shoot me a message if you'll be traversing Kenya anytime soon and I'd love to hear about it or answer any questions you might have!

Welcome to my wayfaring world of stories. My name is Janielle and I’m a traveling musician and music educator 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 peacemaking through acts of compassion and creativity among the young and free. As a nomad at heart, my ‘home’ is wherever I journey with people on the ground and discover life on the frontiers.
