Hi, Shaun and Faith here! Yes,We have been together for 5 years. Long Distance for 4 and a half years.  By bringing us together you can help us start our project and company aimed at preventing children from becoming orphaned and work with single parents in Tanzania and Kenya. We have created this company and www.generositysafaris.com 'Safaris That Make a Difference' website and registered our company but we have yet to recieve clients.
If you Help us we will give you a 10% discount on the safari tours and zanzibar island excursions with our start up. We want to provide our guests with great accomodations at the AirBnb called Acacia Tree Apartments Faith is currently a Manager at. 
- Faith has worked with children services and orphanages for over 10 years throughout Kenya and Tanzania. They created Generosity Safaris Inc. in hopes to guide people the best way to come visit East Africa and make a difference. It's our dream to also teach travellers see the positive impact they can make and maybe travel outside her country and inform others of solutions for poverty in her country.

Read below you will see how its been a long road to get things going.

We met in 2013 when Shaun first travelled to Kenya to work at the orphanage in Mombasa that Faith was working at. We fell in love within a few weeks of knowing each other. When Shaun returned home to Canada after staying in Kenya for 3 months he had a workplace injury in which he almost lost his life on a construction site when a crane fell over. That hindered him from working and had to give up alot of things. We still talk everyday on Facebook or Whatsapp, but we have had a hard time. Faith only makes less then $100 US per month working at an orphanage and managing for interns to come visit. Shaun came to visit a second time in 2018 to see Faith, and get married after saving and barely eating, he saved up enough money to come for another 2 months.

When we went to get married they wouldnt allow it because the paper work he recieved from the ebassy of Canada stating that he had never been married before, wasnt an original document from Canada. This meant that Shaun had to go all the way back to Canada again! and we still havent been married yet. We love each other so much this is realling killing us. Saving up again will be so hard.

We have a dream to be together in East Africa one day, We know we can work together alot more effectively if we were finally married. Faith has never travelled outside of her country so we were looking to raise some money to help her. We need just $2000 US to be able to afford the trip to reunite and get our project underway. Shaun now lives in Ottawa, Canada and Faith now lives in Marangu, Tanzania. 

We have countless messages and proof of our commitment to each other and we would be so greatful if anyone could lend even small amounts. Anything will help.  When we get married finally we will just go to the courthouse we dont need a big wedding. We just want to be together.  :) 

Thank you in advance for any support you can offer us. Even if it's just kind words.
