Letters from Nairobi

(The following are letters received from one of our dear new friends in Kenya, Debbie Nabubwaya. She is a daughter in one of the families that hosted the 2006 team doing service work in Kenya. Trained in social work, she is completing a degree in psychology at Daystar University in Nairobi and will continue to offer help that we find invaluable. We love her and are grateful to her and all those in Kenya who shared so generously with us.)

Dear Keen,

For the Kid Who Has Everything

GoatFor the kid who has everything...help a kid who has nothing!

HARAMBEE (Swahili = “all pull together”) will purchase a goat in your name for a deserving  family in rural Kenya.  The goat will help raise the family from poverty by providing milk to drink & to make cheese.

For the Family Who Has Everything

For the family who has everything ... You are helping a family who has nothing.

HARAMBEE will purchase a dairy goat in your name for a deserving family in rural Kenya. It will help raise the family from poverty by providing milk to drink & to share with a managing school or clinic. 

Send us your picture and information to share & we’ll give it to the family.  And we will send you a photo of the family with your goat.

They will want to know about you! What better message or sweeter gift at Valentine’s Day than helping others in need! Together we’ll bring justice and peace to the world … …one person … one goat … at a time.

Broken sewing machine, chewing gum, & the Patron Saint of Practical Necessity

In July of 2005, a team of 3 friends brought donated sewing machines to our HARAMBEE groups in Kenya.  At Mukuru, we unpacked a machine and plugged it in.  Everyone was excited, as this would expand productivity to include many more items:  uniforms for local school children, Massai dolls, linings or woven purses.
