Zuri Watoto Wote

All the Beautiful Children

Posted in AIDS in Africa, AIDS Orphans by Lynn Ouellette on 11/15/2009
One of millions

Our reason for making this trip

Zuri watoto wote is how you say “all the beautiful children” in Swahili. This photo is from the Nyumbani website, www.nyumbani.org , where you can go to see the programs that Nyumbani has for HIV+ children in Kenya and the sites where we will be volunteering.

There are over 15 million children who live in sub Saharan Africa who have been orphaned because their parents have died of AIDS and over 2 million children have HIV/AIDs. Over one and a half million AIDS orphans live in Kenya. It is estimated that by 2010 one third of all  the children in Africa will be orphaned due to  the AIDS epidemic.

“You must be the change that you want to see in the world.”  Mahatma Ghandi

    Thinking of you, Lynn, and the others as you set out for Kenya this week… Thankful for all the light you bring with you… and all the light you’ll receive. Barbara (long time friend of Deb’s)
