We are so proud of the 7th Hai Anniversary. This is a special date, as we reflect on all that has been done and can be sure we are on the right track.
It was not an easy or fast journey. Those last seven years were filled with great sacrifices and continuous challenges, but the indescribable joy to see so many people involved and families impacted has always made it all worthwhile.
Our hearts are filled with lightness and tranquility, sure of what we have built. We feel an enormous love for everyone who is generous and available to help us as we continue to transforme with love.
I, Mariana, clearly remember all the initial struggles living in Kenya in 2015. There were conflicts, health problems, difficulty with the local dialect, the desire to build a school but no money, the need to raise our funds, hold events, understand all the bureaucratic parts that involve running an organization in Kenya and Brazil. And, last but not least, to continuously learn how to deal with all the emotional burden that surrounds people in vulnerability.
But the joys and accomplishments of impacting so many lives have always been greater. And, today, we can finally say that we are the model school we have dreamed of. Every minute dedicated to Hai was and is still worth it!
Today I want to thank you for supporting us to continue our work. You have dreamt with us and helped us make it happen. I can not find words to thank you enough for such trust and kindness.
Happy anniversary, Hai! Thank you for being a space of love and a school that feeds body and soul. We celebrate your existence fuelled by love!
