A Crucial Time For Hope

All around the world children are using technology to return to school and stay social. In Makindu, Kenya that is not the case. Most homes do not have electricity so the internet is absolutely not an option for any of the Makindu girls. The quarantine is forcing many children, especially girls, to be in close quarters with people they love and the hard truth, people who may be causing them pain or trauma. This entire situation is traumatizing and to get through it we must continue to support the girls and their families with valuable nutrients. It is now costing twice as much to feed the same amount of people because we are unable to have the center open. We can't wait to open up again, but we are so worried that once we do, so many girls will have lost hope due to the harshness of their current realities. This is a very scary time for people in Makindu. Their chances of death are naturally higher than those around the world due to the intense climate, malnutrition, and high risk of disease. Having hope during such an intense time is crucial to keep them alive. We thank you for believing in the importance of the success of girls in Makindu. Asante.
