To Brian and Amy, with gratitude

Today,  Brian Jones passes the Country Director torch to Amy Travis, and we’d like to take a moment to celebrate and thank both of these individuals for their incredible dedication, passion, and relentless drive to fight for a brighter future for the children of Njabini, Kenya.

To the man who brought mighty, you bet, and boundless into our daily vocabulary, who established Gratitude as a staple of our nightly family meetings and infused our home with more light, laughter, and stability than we could ever put to words, THANK YOU, sir. You are a gift to this world!

And to Amy, who immediately jumped headlong into learning the complicated ropes of  an enormous job, and is already tackling an ever evolving mire of re-registrations, permits, school & staffing schedules, while still making time for bed time stories, we are deeply excited and grateful to have you aboard our team.

To our readers, we ask you to take a moment and express your gratitude to the the MIGHTY Brian and Amy, in the comments section of this post, for it is simply not possible to say “We appreciate you” too often.

  1. Mighty Brian – I have followed and loved every one of your posts, every one of your photographs. What a wonderful role model for all the children you have been. I know you will be madly missed. And to Amy – I am sorry that I did not get a chance to meet you before you and Mat flew off to the love and laughter that is Flying Kites. All the best in the coming year.

  2. Through your extraordinary commitment to these kids – your EXTRAORDINARY commitment, you have changed so many lives, Brian. So many more than the 26 children who have learned much about love, hope, responsibility and human kindness from you.

    As one of those very lucky people, I send a huge and heartfelt THANK YOU.

    Thank you for everything, Brian – but in particular for the truly inspiring example you have set. One that has inspired so many people to move beyond caring to action.
    The kids, the caregivers and the community will forever remember, and be grateful for, Uncle Brian.

    Me too.
