Probably the highlight of the trip for most of us was the welcome we received from the beneficiaries at Mathare. The children, vulnerable and at risk children, orphans in the most part. It was these children that we supported in 2007 by climbing Kilimanjaro through RFFA’s orphan Rescue project in conjunction with Hope World Wide.
It was heartening to visit them again and to witness their remarkable progress in this slum, one of the worst in the world, and to see how their light is shining through like a beacon of hope. Our work is not done here and we would like to think that this coming year we will raise enough funds to see them into secondary school. This project is highly sustainable and must be kept going at all costs.
Here is a video of the fashion parade one event in the day spent at Mathare and the Kidz Club that will never be forgotten by those of us who were privileged to be there.
