Working with Kenya's children is a privilege; often hard work, occasionally frustrating work, but nothing rewards like a letter from one of the children. I feel that I share this honor and love with you, the donors, who have made it possible.
This is an edited version of a letter written to me, the project leader, by our most recent high school graduate, John. It makes it all worthwhile!!
I can now tell what you go through in life for us to live comfortably, get an education clothes and food. I lack words to express my thanks, love and concern to you. You really mean a lot to me. You are such a loving, caring and a kind mother and I always thank God for helping make you think and reason with your heart because most probably I would not be here and the far I have gone in life. You are so wonderful because you have served and this earns you a badge of honor to me though I know you will say humility is the true badge of the highest honor.
You have also taught me about choice and now I am very careful while making my choices more than I was before. Now the thing I have learned from you is to be kind, honest, have integrity, love and respect to others.
I pray to God to give you a very long life so that you will see your products, the fruits of your good, best and great work in this world.
