Happy Birthday Farajah and Baracka!

Beautiful Farajah
Smiley Baracka

Today we are doubly joyful – it is the birthday of two fantastic Nkoaranga kids – Farajah and Baracka. Baracka was tiny and underweight when he started at the orphanage – Amy had to nurse him every few hours for months to keep him alive. Now he is a gorgeous and happy three year old!

Farajah, our little mama, is no longer at the orphanage – she has moved on to SOS Children’s villages, a fantastic organization that runs family style housing and provides incredible schooling for some very lucky kids. We went to visit her in December, and she was absolutely thriving, so proud to show off her new home and friends – as was Aroni, our other FABULOUS little guy who is living there with her now, along with two older Nkoaranga “graduates,” Wema and Heavenlight, and a number of former NK toddlers who are now teenagers!

Me and Aroni now!

Yesterday was also International Women’s Day, and what better time to highlight, once again, the incredible work that our Mamas do for the Nkoaranga kids? We are so grateful for their tireless dedication, and we couldn’t be more honored to work with them all.

To Mama Andrew…

…and all the other amazing women we work with, thank you a million times over for everything you do.
