Shortly after arriving at Karura forest
We always look forward to end year holidays at TAGS! It is always such an opportune time for our girls to relax after being in school for most part of the year. We bet you love holidays too! This holiday we had our girls together with some of our partners (Lotus Healing Seva Group) have a fun day on the 17th of November 2016 in one of our beautiful forests in Kenya ( Karura forest) located in the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya. They had lots of fun bonding with one another through wonderful talks, planting trees, sharing a sumptuous meal and even having a cake to celebrate one partner’s birthday! Their beautiful faces were lit with joy as they headed back home (atTAGS Shelter) in the evening. Mrs. Kamal, the event organizer had this to say, "We loved taking the girls out. They were very well behaved and enjoyed themselves very much!" One of our girls, Mary (not her real name), had this to say in return, "The day was awesome! Karura forest was a serene environment. We had a great tree planting session, made new friends and had a delicious meal." What a day that had been!
We would not have been able to do this without you! It is because of partners like you we are able to make sure our girls have a wholesome life, just like every girl should. We want to be able to support more girls this coming year and it is with this regard we are excited to invite you to support us this coming Giving Tuesday which will be held on the 29th of November 2016 on GlobalGiving. This day is important for us because there will be a 50% match on donations made up to the first $1 million raised on GlobalGiving!
In addition to this great matching opportunity, all new recurring donations made from Giving Tuesday through December 31st 2016 will be matched at 200% up to $100, on the forth donation!
We need you to help us raise these funds and therefore we kindly request you to donate to us on Giving Tuesday and spread the word. We will be glad to have you help us in this way!
Thank you for being a part of us and we wish you and your loved ones a wonderful experience this coming holiday season!
