World Malaria Day was celebrated at the Kiima Kimwe Health Clinic on April 25, 2013. We’re now happy to present photos of the event, which drew hundreds of area residents to the clinic for drop-in medical services, education, and vaccinations.

tenacious-treeOne of the primary reasons Other Paths exists is because we set aggressive goals. Had we not pushed ourselves way beyond the boundaries of what we thought was possible, this organization and the impact on the thousands of lives it has achieved would never have happened. And yes, all along the way, every day, at every hour, we have encountered our share of uncertainty, obstacles (both great and small), and sometimes even despair… We’ve had tremendous ups, and sometimes comparable downs. Our tenacity, like that of the tree in the photo, has led us to the verge of a breakout year in which this organization will accomplish greater results on an ever-expanding scale.

The people who come to us to work alongside us and our Kenyan friends & family already have that ‘spark’ to them– they want to do something extraordinary. We provide them a chance to do something amazing; like our founder Christina Berlin says, “This is a BIG DEAL.” We push people to set goals for themselves for fundraising, skills development, and cooperation with the expectation that they will emerge from our programs with new, powerful insights on what is possible for themselves and the lives they normally inhabit.

Setting goals beyond your comfort zone, beyond where you THINK you can reach, and working stubbornly toward those goals literally changes the world, because it changes your perception of what is possible. Once your perception changes, you begin operating on a different level, achieving more powerful results through your intentions and actions.

This is our goal for all our program participants. We believe that once you work with us to improve the lives of our dear friends in rural Kenya– thousands and thousands of miles away from the comforts of your home– you will see your own personal life, your family, your community, your nation, and your world differently, full of exciting opportunities to achieve powerful, positive, and enduring results.

Screen Shot 2013-03-22 at 12.13.39 PMHello, fellow travelers. We figured it was high time we started publishing a blog on the site. We want to use this as a tool to remain in communication with our teams, followers, friends, and family as well as a sounding board for topics that relate to our work both in the U.S. and abroad. We hope you find it useful and informative!
