  1. Happy reunion in Kibera Posted by rywornae on September 10, 2012 First day back in Kibera after more than a year. It was a very happy reunion with the kids at Shine Academy. Seeing the difference a year of education, love, food and clean water makes in the life of impoverished, abused and malnourished children is the fuel that feeds my passion. What an awesome and emotional experience! Thank you to my heroes Javi and Catherine for doing all that you do (see previous posting).
