Together we shared a mostly happy journey - facing and overcoming obstacles, meeting fascinating people wherever we went while falling completely in love with the people of Kenya. This book is a tribute to my co-laborers and in writing this book I hope to show that one does not need to be a hero to step out, take risks and make the world a better, healthier and happier place. -Jack O'Leary
An archbishop, an environmentalist and an AIDS activist are only a few of the heroes, who stood up against a ruthless dictator and corrupt government, in Jack O'Leary's My Road to Kenya.
My Road to Kenya shines a light on a group of everyday heroes who believe they were called to make a difference in the lives of the people of Kenya. Fate and faith led them to the crossroads where their paths converged. Working together they have built and supplied hospitals, clinics, schools, churches, and homes for hundreds of children- many of whom were orphaned by HIV/AIDS. Through it all they asked for nothing for themselves. Yet in the end, the collaborations of these everyday heroes resulted in something invaluable - the forging of deep and long-lasting friendships.
