Season’s greetings from Nanyuki, Kenya! I send you blessings and an update on my mission with the moms and their children here at Imara International. With your faithful support, we are truly making a difference. Here are two success stories:
A beautiful and talented young lady with a great desire to succeed says “thank you” for all the support I give to her. Today she thanked me for being more than a mom to her, and more than her mom could ever be for her, because I set the bar high, while being an example, teaching her to press on to a higher mark. She said all this with eye contact (not common here) and tears of gratitude rolling down her face.
A mother of one of our young moms doesn’t speak English, yet we communicate. During Family Day this year, she took me aside and had one of our matrons translate for her. She shared her gratitude with me for who we are and what we do.
