FOUR INTENSE DAYS OF ENDFGM TRAINING, A SCHOOL MENTORSHIP PROGRAM AND PROJECT97.
Our team was a bit stretched and had to adjust with what was happening on ground. God was teaching us patience and not everything will go as planned, however he will show up for his purposes to be achieved.
It was hot ,dry and dusty in the Masaai community and they are experiencing a drought which has extended for close to one year.
We had to adjust our timings to train in the afternoon until about 4pm for them to go get their animals.
FGM IS STILL RAMPANT AND THEY MENTIONED IT AS A KEY ISSUE IN THE COMMUNITY.
After training and watching the video, they said they will champion the rest of the villages not to practice FGM (Female Genital Mutilation). Alcoholism was also a big issue and they made a decision to close all the pubs in the village and told us to go and check that they will have kept their word.
It’s always a traumatic experience where they feel what they underwent and wouldn’t want their little girls to go through it. Keep praying and supporting this great cause because its first more of a spiritual battle than anything.
PROJECT 97 SAVED MANY LIVES
Project 97 is our feeding program for the old, orphans and the vulnerable in the community. The drought season has hit families especially hard as we have found families that have been without food for days, and we came just in time.
We also distributed to the old people in Kiambaa who have terminal illness and wouldn’t go out to even work for they are incapacitated. This trip, we were able to feed 154 families.
