    Gladys During the weeks of circumcision (Nov/Dec 2011), 25 more children came to Tareto Maa. So we shelter 95 children now in the rescue center.

    Gladys In the previous week, 4 more girls came to Tareto Maa and asked for help. That means that since the circumcision season started in November, 14 new girls ran for shelter.

    Gladys Two weeks ago, the “circumcision season” started again. Since then 10 more girls came and asked for shelter. This number of girls lies within our expectations. So we still expect ca. 20 "new children" till the end of the year.

    Helen We have had a magnifient response at the beginning of the challenge, but my fear is we are loosing the momentum. Only $990 to go. All the donations, big or small are fantastic, so we say thanks to that.

    Gladys A river divides our region into 2 parts. As there was no bridge so far many children had to walk through the water every day to attend school. This was very dangerous. So we & the local community joined forces to build a bridge.

      Berry Thanks for the update from Kenya. On America's Thanksgiving Day, it is humbling to realize that children ford dangerous rivers to walk to school. I'm thankful to be part of the efforts to support the work of Gladys and Tareto Maa to better the lives of children.
