Happy Anniversary Center

The center just celebrated its 7th birthday. Seven years in which it has grown from 20 to 300 children. Seven years of trial and error, of near shut downs and rescues. Seven years of joy, laughter, tears, theft, fire, donations, support, disappointment, surprise and mostly...300 children getting food and schooling!

That calls for a party!

Birthday cake! Enjoy!

Red Dress Run Coming Up!

This Sunday 6 November, we will organize a red dress run to raise more money for the center. The idea is that we walk or run in a red dress, men and women, in down town Tana. We have sponsorship from corporate companies, and the individual walkers and runners will have themselves sponsored by friends, colleagues and families!

If you are in Tana: JOIN US

Thank and ON ON
