Craft Hope Project 25----We are Kenya

We Are Kenya is an organization who believes that one way to change a society is to change the future of it's youth. They are a nonprofit dedicated to feeding and educating sweet children in the slums of Soweto, Kenya. Soweto is the second largest slum in Kenya and home to We Are Kenya. Soweto is a large slum whose people daily struggle with sickness, crime, hunger, and hopelessness that results from severe poverty. In a slum where many children have one or no parent, the daily quest for food supersedes any hope for education.

They need handmade knitted/crochet hats, gloves, and scarves. Approximately 200 to be exact for kids ages 4-15. Winters get cold at night and we need to keep these sweet kids bundled up. Sewn hats and scarves are also welcome.

I made up some mittens with yarn I had on hand.  It is a small thing...but it can make a difference in a child's life.  If everyone does a little, a lot will be accomplished. 

The Project 25 mailing deadline is: November 15, 2014.  Please try to have all of your handmade items to them by this date.
