The Endeavourist is the story of an Irish banker who exchanged his five-storey house near Buckingham Palace and fabulous lifestyle for a chilli-growing project in rural East Africa.
After losing his job during the financial crisis of 2008 and his marriage a few months later, Ken King decided that his life had become empty, and his contribution to the history of humanity would ultimately be recorded only in pounds and pence. Could he start over and leave the world a better place?
This is the story of a larger than life character who used his business expertise and the monies from his house sale to try to change the fortunes of the impoverished Siboti region. It's about a man whose African journey began with educating orphans and creating an innovative micro-finance scheme for farmers, and ended with a police escort out of Kenya.
The Endeavourist is about following your dream until it becomes a nightmare, but it still being the best thing that you ever did.
