When We Stop to Celebrate Kenyan Mothers


Posted: March 7, 2021

Mother’s Day (held on the 9th May) is a big event in Kenya because mothers are highly revered in Kenyan society and they are considered as the heroes in their local communities. One Horizon holds village parties to celebrate Mother’s Day and you are invited. It’s a private event at the projects we support, so the party guests are you and your friends and a crowd of assorted mothers, grandmothers and their families. These mothers take time out from their usual activities to celebrate Mother’s Day, and by joining in our parties you will get a deep insight into the customs and structures of rural Kenyan family life. Enjoy great food and conversation, lively singing and dancing, and if you are a mother or grandmother yourself, this is a wonderful opportunity to share many stories and much laughter.
