This time he's heading into the heart of Kenya with 16 other World Expeditions community project travellers to give their time to build desks, refurbish classrooms and assist in installing a new water tank.<br /> <br /> Project material funding was raised via our Footprints program through the kind donations from 679 World Nomads.<br /> <br /> Trent was also accompanied by the 2007 Documentary Scholarship winner, Cesar Salmeron.<br /> <br /> We hope you enjoy, Positive Footprints - Kenya.

Armed with a camera, bags of batteries, some warm clothing and his wits, we sent him to capture the essence of a World Expeditions community project travel trip. We also asked customs to not let him back in unless he had a good story.<br /> <br /> He was to join 13 travellers as they trek into one of the most remote parts of Nepal to help refurbish the Saramthali school and repair a retaining wall constantly threatened by the harsh climate of the Himalayas.<br /> <br /> This is the story of what happens when a group of travellers choose to make a difference, the effect it has on them, as well as the local community. Grab a drink, something to nibble on, maybe a couple of tissues and enjoy, Positive Footprints - Nepal.
