Faces of Hope in Nairobi


I took nearly one thousand pictures during the full six days I was in Nairobi with Every Girl Counts. I wanted to capture as best I could what I was seeing. I wanted to remember the living conditions, the daily life, the faces.


I still have a few posts in my mind that I want to write about my recent incredible experience in Africa. In the mean time, I’d love for you to consider donating to Every Girl Counts as they work on raising funds for Hope Academy, a high school for girls from Kibera, Africa’s largest slum. Kibera is home to one million people, many of whom will spend their entire lives there.


Want to read more about my experience in Africa with Every Girl Counts, a Franklin, Tennessee non-profit building a high school for teen girls from Nairobi’s Kibera slum? Here are my previous posts:

  1. Oh my
    their little faces
    are beautiful :)

  2. Just look at those precious babies. Why does life have to be so hard for some and easy for others? Especially when it comes to children…I hate to see suffering. We live such abundant lives…... when it comes to providing care for children around the world..it should be our obligation to send help.Children are children.
    Now I’m down off my soapbox and pray that there are many others like you, Jamie, who care.

  3. What you are doing is great :)
