What happens when two wild brilliant minds get together? They use their powers for GOOD! When our amazing ambassador Celeste Barber reached out to Sonya Driver, founder of Eco Tan, to ask for help to raise much needed funds for us, Sonya jumped into action and within days a glorious plan was in place.

Our young boy comes from one the most horrific backgrounds you could imagine, and the biggest miracle is that he survived the sadistic abuse that he lived through. He was the second born of 4 children. He had a very gentle loving Mama and his tortured face softens when he remembers tiny bits about his

Dear Oprah We have just watched a clip of 60 mins and we can’t tell you the excitement this generates as we feel as if you are speaking our words. We have 70 deeply traumatised children in four therapeutic houses in Kenya. Each and every one of our children has a

a young man who life almost missed…

Being in Kenya is always a roller coaster of emotion and none more than this trip. I find that I move from laughing to crying from moment to moment. Things are pretty full on at this moment and we face some tough decisions in the next few days – when that happens you can forget

The past of one of our beautiful girls is continuing to haunt her. This Rafiki Angel has a past life that I don’t think many of us could survive. She was prostituted for 10 years until she came to us at 12 years old. She is now 17. She struggles in daily life but she

Our Video Link is a Reality

This may be one the most mind-blowing moments of our project. The day the video link went live really can’t tell the story of the eight years prior. Eight years of planning, talking, being told how ridiculous our plan was; Anne-Marie being turned away from meetings because she was a ‘silly woman’ and yet the
