Asembo Bay Women for Development

For $25 you can purchase a Kindness Bag to be donated to a child in Asembo Bay, Kenya. These Kindness Bags include a HERA doll and an African-themed Barefoot Book. You can also write a short message in the comments and we will print it out and include it in the Kindness Bag.

from Wendy Muckle, February 2nd, 2016

Today is the worst day of the year - orphan selection day. This is the day when our group meets to review the marks of all the group’s children who are eligible to proceed to secondary school. That list is supplemented by “requests” - children from the community who are deserving of an education but not already part of our group. Their names are put forward by the school, the local leaders and their families. This year we have 25 names to consider plus five more requests which have come directly to me.
