It was a day full of joy and jubilation as our girls here at Springs of Hope Foundation’s Kijiji Mission Project in Nakuru, Kenya were graduating, marking the completion of their one-year training course. The day started with the hall decorations and their work e.g., dresses, shirts, blouses, beadwork, and table runners were displayed outside the hall for the parents to view as the new group and the graduating girls wore their own self-made attire and graced us with songs and dances from their different cultures. The occasion was graced by parents who traveled from many regions, including the parents of the students from Maasai Mara who were adorned in their stunning full Maasai attire. The parents appreciated the project for the lasting transformation in their daughters’ lives. They leave us with a trade and many life skills that will empower their lives forever. They presented a Maasai blanket to our center’s landlord Retired Col. Raymond and lassos to Pastor Susan for the good work of offering spiritual and counseling sessions to our girls every Wednesday, Teacher Martha for her tireless devotion to training the girls in making the latest designs, and lastly but not least, myself, Antoinette, the Administration Manager for my total devotion to the smooth running of the project and motherly love to our girls. Certificates were issued, and we crowned the occasions with the cake cutting, followed by the photo session.
We all wish our mum Jennifer Hughes and all our donors a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
