This upcoming trip to Ethiopia is bringing some amazing people together.
I’d like to introduce our little group:
The Ring Leader: Meet Paul Chadha
President of the Awassa Children’s Project, Attorney, Professor at Northwestern- not to mention husband and father! Thanks to him, we will be checking out the Awassa Children’s Center and working together to uplift the children and families of the area.
The Writer: Shannon Colleary
Writes for the Huffington Post and The Woman Formerly Known As Beautiful
The Doctor: Dr. Jay Gordon
Dr. Gordon is a celebrity in his own right. He speaks about topics other doctors shy away from, and is known as a revolutionary “attachment parenting” doctor. His medical expertise and presence will be a huge bonus for the children of ACP and our team.
The Travel Specialist: Terry von Guilleaume
Head of Destination Southern Africa and the nonprofit, DSA Pays It Forward. Terry is the amazing coordinator for all of our African adventures. His team specializes in family travel and he knows the continent well (Terry is originally from South Africa). Terry and some of his team will be coming with us, and we are so excited.
The OG Photographer: Kyle LaMere
Kyle is a veteran traveler to Awassa. He is the one to credit for all of the Awassa Children’s Project website photos. Follow him on twitter: @ishootrockstars
(and it is a good thing he shoots rockstars…)
The Rockstar: Paul Perry
yes, even my very busy bass playing rockstar buddy is making time for this trip.
And last, but certainly not least….
The Photojournalist Adventurer: Lori Dorman
My family met Lori Dorman when she came to our home to take photos for the upcoming issue of Pathways to Family Wellness. By the end of the photo session she was coming to Ethiopia with us!
Lori has an incredible talent for capturing the essence of motherhood. The stories she tells with her photographs make her the perfect person to help tell the story of the people of Ethiopia. We are so excited to have her!
