This exceptional demonstration of floral creations, mini gardens and presentation of tables dressed for a meal using only natural elements, was organised by the Association líArt Floral de Mougins. As part of their ongoing work regarding re-cycling/upcycling, students made beautiful bird houses out of recuperated material.
The School will also have a stand at the Fête Eden, organised by the municipality of Mougins, which takes place at the Etang de Fontmerle on Saturday 20th May.
Please will you thank everyone for choosing Kenyan Kids and its Familia project to be the beneficiaries of your Red Nose Day event held at the end of March.
When we started this project two years ago, none of our ten young girls were in school and our aim then, as it is now, was to return them to school, keep them safe and provide them with a nurturing and caring environment.
As you can imagine, it is a challenging job to raise sufficient funds to ensure they have a roof over their head, there is enough food on the table, they have clothing, their medication needs are met plus their school fees are paid. I am stunned each time I remember - there is no free education (nor free health care) in Kenya!
Without the generosity of your donation, life for sure, could be taking a significantly different path for these ten ‘ex street’ girls. Such a significant donation helps them to stay in school providing each of them with a safe and secure ‘family’ environment to return to each evening. What must it be like for those girls to have been given their childhood back!
Our vision over this coming year is to find individual sponsors for each of these girls, not only financial sponsorship but to show them that people are willing to invest emotionally in helping them build their future lives.
I would love to visit Mougins again and give you a further update on exactly how your donation is working!
With warm thanks.
President and Founder
