Beatings and Burnings

Sitting at breakfast this trip has been a joy. We have taken two boys from our older Kings house with us each morning. It gives me a way of ensuring I spend time with them all, as I have a crazy busy agenda while I’m here. It has other impacts to. Many of the boys have opened up about life in town before they came to live with us. One boy talked about his childhood. His father died when he was five. He described him as a good man that didn’t beat him but talked to him if he made a mistake. His mother died the following year, again she was a kind and loving mama, so proud of her four children.

Safari Mwema 2017

I am not sure where to start with this post.  It is long overdue.. It should have come months ago when Laura from Asante Adventures started ‘Safari Mwema’ for Rafiki Mwema.  It should have come while all of the wonderful participants where busy working hard raising funds to reach their $2000 target or perhaps it should have come when they were climbing that ridiculous size mountain!

Our Emergency Plea…

Rafiki Mwema needs your help We are totally committed to loving, educating, providing therapy and supporting our very vulnerable, and extremely gorgeous children through their time with us and beyond, but we are failing to cover our huge monthly costs.

I can already feel the transformation..

We wanted to share with you this update from one of our volunteers so you can see our organisation from an outsiders eyes.  You can find Jemma over on her FB page About to give birth to a baby called Kenya I have been writing this reflection for some time now. I don’t think it will ever really be finished. It has taken me 3 weeks to get it to a point where I am ready to share because each day I learn something new and want to add it here. From the time I started here at Rafiki I have been reflecting on all of my experiences and I have already filled two journals with my inner most private thoughts but now I feel like it’s time to share some of them…
