Recently, we were contacted by Maisha orphanage in Kenya who wants to mimic our business model in Afghanistan. The orphanage is responsible for the care of roughly 55 children, many of whom lost their parents to HIV/AIDS and are themselves infected. The older women in the community sew garments for the children and are capable of making items that fit well with our already established online store. Our goal is to travel to Kenya between 12-19 July to build rapport and facilitate a relationship between Flying Scarfs and Maisha.
This trip will be quite expensive and will be paid for out-of-pocket by all who attend. The flight alone is $1588.00 - my target amount. All contributions are greatly appreciated and will directly assist in our effort to eradicate poverty and violence worldwide.
