3 Ways We Can End Slavery…Now.

It was our first night in southern India. Akil, our instant and forever friend, picked us up at the busy airport and navigated through four hours of bumpy roads, stray dogs, and impossible turns. The smell of condensed milk mixed with spices filled with air, unfamiliar music – no, musics – played all at the same time, and I knew this wasContinue reading “3 Ways We Can End Slavery…Now.”

Faces of India & a chance to help

Dan and I were hugely honoured to be able to visit an area of Tamil Nadu in India this summer. It was a dream come true. I am still processing all that we saw and heard (and tasted!) on our trip.

Theirs, clasped together as they shake their heads and greet “auntie”. Hands. Hers, opening the curtains in the doorways of the three-month old hospital she runs to proudly show itContinue reading “Hands of India”

We quiz each other, every now and then, on our dreams, on where we’re going, on what weContinue reading “Thoughts before the Big Adventure”
