  • Description


    Jambo. My name is Umra, founder of an organisation. I am a passionate believer of diversity and making a difference in the world. Given that I absolutely looooooooove what I am doing and where I live, the only challenge is education for our little globe trotters based out of a remote corner of the world. To solve this, we started a school with a few friends and the only thing missing is you - a passionate and adventurous educator for our kids!!!

    We live in a one-of-a-king paradise, a cosmopolitan exotic village that hugs infinite sandy beaches with interesting people from all walks of life. They say that a picture speaks a thousand words so save yourself the text and google Shela Lamu Kenya then click images :)
