Honoring the Women of Wana Duma Children's Project
Serah, our little girl born with Spina Bifida, had called earlier in the week to say she missed us and it had been too long – When were we coming to see her…and could we bring balloons, please?!?
Challenges, Changes and Remembering Cu-cu Kagure & Mama Njeri
Today, March 8th, is International Women's Day. We are celebrating the amazing women of Wana Duma Children's Project. Lead by passionate women, both in Kenya and the United States, Wana Duma Children's Project provides health and wellness support for mothers who are HIV+ and grandmothers and great-grandmothers who are raising their orphaned grandchildren. Inspiring. Selfless. Loving. Hardworking. These are just a few words to describe the many women we have the honor of serving.
Planting Trees- No Little Thing
Stepping off the airplane and into the busy, humid Nairobi night after traveling for more than 24 hours is both an exhausting and exhilarating moment. I am back!
Easing the Burden
"It's the little things citizens do. That's what will make the difference. My little thing is planting trees." ~Wangari Maathai
When life is at its' most difficult we often find it is the people surrounding us who can help change the feeling of desperation to determination. That difficult point is exactly where Wana Duma Children's Project (WDCP) operates - right between despair and hopeful determination.
In Kenya, where nearly half of the population lives below the poverty line, families are often forced to make difficult decisions on how best to use their limited resources for the benefit of their children.
