the Unity Centre Uniform project ( part three)

The project is complete, and the students have their new school uniforms! We are all very grateful to everyone who helped us accomplish this goal. As promised, here are pictures from when Peter and Collins arrived at the Unity Centre, working with the school director Eunice to help the students find their right size. As the boxes were brought into the classroom, the students lined up to be sized appropriately.

We know that although it is only a piece of clothing, the symbolism behind it is a powerful message. It is one of caring for another human being. It gives hope to the one who wears it, helping them to stay focused on education, to let them reach their fullest potential. We hope that this project will help the children to reach their dreams, their goals. We want them to know that there are people in the world who care for them.

 All those involved in Nairobi want to let the world know how grateful they are for what they have received.

Peter is currently traveling to his hometown of Illeret in Ethiopia. Our project has received another donation and Peter is heading home to find the best use of this donation for his home and people. Safe travels Peter, and we can not wait to see what comes next.
