About two weeks ago at my church, there was a bulletin board up with a bunch of pictures and descriptions of children in Kenya that were a part of Global Hope. Global Hope is a humanitarian organization that works to promote care and love and support for kids that have been abandoned are orphans, and that are at risk. All of the kids at Spring Valley, which is a school, were a part of this letter writing event where you write a letter to as many kids as you like, and they have the chance to connect with you and respond.
Here are some brief descriptions of the kids that I am writing to:
Cyndrine- Cyndrine is an eleven year old girl in class seven. She lives with her younger brother and mom. She is safe at a nice dormitory where food and safety are provided.
Purity- This seven-year old girl lives with her parents, two brothers, and one sister. She is in class two at Spring Valley. She wants to be a teacher when she grows up.
Wendy- Wendy is fifteen years old and lives with her mother and younger sister. She is working hard to accomplish her dreams of becoming a lawyer.
Virginia- Virginia is sixteen years old. She lives with both of her parents. She is a wonderful musician and wants to be a musician in the future.
Getting the chance to write to these kids is very inspiring and makes you do a lot of thinking about life and friendship. From this, I hope to make a few new friends and get to know more about Global Hope and the world.
