How one man tried to beat extreme poverty in Kenya
Would you, should you, ever sell your well-appointed, five-storey house near Buckingham Palace to uplift an impoverished area in rural East Africa?
Kenneth King thought he should, so he did.
This is The Endeavourist.
Fast-paced and deeply moving, this adventure memoir of an inspirational Irishman begins with educating orphans and creating an innovative scheme for families to escape poverty, and ends with a police escort out of Kenya.
This is a personal tale of how Kenneth followed his dream until it became a nightmare… or was it the best thing he ever did?
