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!

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.
