For the past year I have lived with some of the most amazing children, grandparents and staff one could imagine here in Nyumbani Village. The children are so full of joy despite having lost their parents and, often, siblings. The grandparents show resilience and take care of both their own grandchildren and others. The staff work tirelessly to build an inspiring organization that helps 950 children to live in a safe, caring environment with the gurantee or food and a good education. It has made me endlessly grateful for the things I have- such as my family, clean and running water, access to education and so much more.

 Many of you have asked how you can help these children and this organization. Here is your chance! I want to leave some funds behind as I prepare to leave the Village. Many donors donate to glamorous projects (biogas technologies, solar panels, etc) but I want to first donate to the boring, but essential, task of replacing/procuring beddings for some of the children. Another portion of the money I raise will go towards creating a micro-fund to support students graduating from the Polytechnic who wish to begin businesses or search for jobs in their trade. Any and all support is greatly appreciated. A few dollars can go a long way, so if you are interested, please donate now!
