It’s been a good 3 years now since my sponsorship of my darling Lazaro in Tanzania, Africa ended but I still think of him so regularly. He changed my life, and I’m so thankful to have had the opportunity to have met him.

Going to Tanzania to visit my sponsor child was my primary reason for going to East Africa. Who knew that I would be so mesmerised and completely changed after the visit. Nairobi and Northern Tanzania, Arusha, were like no-where I had ever been before. There is so much room for growth and development- but the people also seem happy and thankful for what they have.

I’ve since been back to Africa and fulfilled my second dream of climbing Mt Kilimanjaro for Alzheimer’s Australia NSW to honour my grandpa. I first saw the incredible mountain on this trip.


To have a mother look you in the eyes and, without words, say thank you, is something I truly can never forget.

My father went on to sponsor his little brother, pictured here, after being so moved by my visit to their village.

  1. Thanks for sharing, almost brought tears to my eyes. Your family must be proud! Thanks for inspiring me to do something for the less fortunate as well.


    1. Thank you for your beautiful words Ishan.

      It was the most incredible day of my life and I felt truly thankful for my experience and to live the life I live.

      I’m so happy I can inspire you and I hope you too can feel the joy from giving to another.


  2. My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of
    websites for about a year and am worried about switching
    to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.

    net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?

    Any help would be really appreciated!


    1. Not sure on this one sorry.

      Long time WordPress user and I do think it’s the best of them all.

      Thanks for your comments and best of luck with your blogging
