I’ve received hundreds of pictures over the years from our cooperatives in Africa as well as from those we’ve helped through your support. But there is just something about photos like these that brings tears to my eyes every single time!
I have to admit I love getting photos from our cooperatives of their training sessions, the ladies getting paid for their hard work or just sitting around together laughing while they attend training courses or work together. But the kids… oh the kids…
As a mama, my heart has a special warm place in it for Africa’s children. As I often say: “Mama to one, mama to all.” So, meet a few of “my” beautiful children enjoying a few of the recent donations that were sent to their school in northern Ghana. And most of all, thank YOU for your purchases which made this possible yet again.**
Oh, and if you are curious as to why we sent dolls and art supplies, be sure to check out my previous blog post about Black Dolls and Dreamers
** Mama Afrika offers fair and ethically traded products and then donates a percentage of all proceeds to small local projects across Africa which are working to improve the lives of women and children.
