Thank you for donating in the past and thank you to those who have decided to subscribe. We have been trying to finish the dormitory that ended up being bigger than we had originally budgeted for when the need was so apparent. We were able to get a Google match through employees voting to help fund the project and that gave us the ability to get a good running start. You have been generous in your donations to keep the building project moving along.
With so few new donations, and my reports being less than exciting, I will need to close this account and try to get funding in other ways.
Our committment is to see this project to the end and we thank you for your involvement.
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.
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.
