New Light Continues to Work to Break the Cycle

Dear Donors,

Thank you for your support of New Light and the shelter that works to break the cycle of abuse and sex trafficking through sheltering children who would be wandering the streets when their mother is working. When the children have a place to go, a program that assists them in getting an education, and a home where they are cared for and loved, then the vicious cycle of sex work can be stopped for the lucky ones who are under the care of New Light.

New Light takes chilcren as young as three months old into their shelter as their mother's work. The hope is that the women can be released from their life of slavery but for most, its all they know since they were very young. Giving them choices has been the best that can be done for their children and some of the few women who are able to escape the life. There are several social enterprises set up for alternative incomes for the women and and slowly there is a shift.

Your donation is helpful and provides money for food for the children, medical care and their school tuition.

We thank you for your generosity.

Best regards,

Shana Greene

New Moringa Tree Project!

Dear Donor,

Thank you for your support for the Moringa Tree Project. With the money raised, thousands of trees have been planted and many people affected through economic devleopment and abaitment of malnutrition for the very young. This "miracle" tree has a multitude of uses including 90 different nutrients and twice the protein as soybean meal. 

Our new project will be in Migori Kenya, one of the poorest regions in the country. The climate in this region is ideal and the need is palpable. With your help, we have been albe to multiply your donations through distribution of seed and knowledge about cultivation and uses of moringa.

Thanks again for you ongoing support.

Best wishes,

Slow but Moving Forward

Dear Donors,

Thank you for donating in the past. While we have not raised as much as we had hoped, we did get a boost from Google employees and a match from Google.  Your donations are helping us finish the building and buy the beds and furnishings. We are working on the bathrooms and putting in the window.

The building is larger than we had first planned because of the need. When its done, it will be a safe haven for girls to live while going to school. Walking long distances after a long day at school has proven to be very difficult. Having the girls close to school allows them to study and to never encounter the dangers of a long walk home. 

We are grateful for those of you who continue to see the need and continue to put faith in this project.

Thank you!
