Drew Barrymore Covers 'Conde Nast Traveler'

Drew Barrymore chronicles her trip to Kenya with the World Food Programme in the September 2011 issue of Conde Nast Traveler.

Here’s what the 36-year-old actress, who gave a primary school, food, and wells to villagers through the World Food Programme had to share:

On reaching out after reading about Kenyan children who walked miles to school: “I was really moved. I never went to school myself. I was doing a job and didn’t have a kids life. I wanted to learn more about why these kids were so passionate, walking so far and overfilling their classrooms.”

On feeling awkward about her first meetings with villagers: “I didn’t want to be on a soapbox, this Westerner living in a bubble, so on the first trip I was a little nervous. I asked questions and listened a lot…”

On learning about what the Kenyan children want to be when they grow up: “It’s amazing to me that the kids mention professions which involve helping others, that they are naturally philanthropic. People can feel unconfident about sending money into the void of a charity. But when you find something like this that speaks to your heart, it gives you the courage to look beyond your own problems and take the first small steps to try as an individual to make an impact.”

    I wasn’t a fan of her Little Edie in Grey Gardens. Thanks for the laugh Drew. :)

    She’s someone who in the right light looks very pretty. I find she’s a teenager, with a face looking 20 something with a 60 year old’s life experience and liver.
