I’ve been avidly following Amy’s time at the Maisha children's home near Nairobi via Facebook, along with many friends and followers of The Gracias Foundation. It’s moving to see life through a different lens, through someone else’s eyes. The fun and discovery the kids are having constructing and building different models with the amazing donation from LEGO Foundation. A boy running with and rolling a tyre. Beautiful roses on a market stall during a shopping trip with Mama Maisha. An omelette made with eggs and tea with goat’s milk fresh from the farm. A new-born goat taking its first shaky steps.
I’m grateful for the donations and repeat donors who are helping to give these kids a life all children should be able to live. And to Amy for her commitment to The Gracias Foundation and for her gorgeous photos.
Post-script: I was doing my usual trawl through Twitter this morning and came across this Maasai Proverb tweeted by @AfricanProverbs:
“Clever is the eye that has travelled”
