THE BOOK — HOUSE OF FRIENDS — VISION YOURSELF FOR OTHERS
This project is much much more than just a book – much much more.
House of Friends
Vision Yourself for Others
House of Friends is a collection of short stories which shares what happens when we look beyond our self-serving world. The stories will resonate with the reader because each story reveals a life changing “WOW” moment when we learn how real life works because we discover that our actions have consequences; we notice how even the smallest action converts to real change towards social justice; and, we relish the emergence of our real character as we reach our potential to be a vision for others. The reader will discover that this process is not all pretty, because these stories share the mistakes, the hardships, and the pains of life, as well as the successes.
Become a part of the story by listening to the collides of Western and African culture during a more than fifteen-year journey of Jamey, a Western mentor with his East African mentees. This visceral experience includes passionate and personal stories of the give and take of two worlds learning from each other, a process which not only shapes the mentees' creative thinking and problem-solving abilities, but also further develops the mentor.
Ultimately, the reader will experience the full growth and progression of Pato, the mentee, as he now becomes an African mentor with African and Western mentees. House of Friends bridges the world’s differences, addresses white savior syndrome, exposes mistruths between cultures, but mostly shares stories which reveal what it means to be human.
