Almost Wordless Wednesday: Building Hope

“This school will not be just a school. This school will be a witness to many.”

- Peter Abungu, director, Swahiba Youth Networks

Hope Academy Land

Future site of Hope Academy, a secondary school for girls from the Kibera slum of Nairobi, which is Africa’s largest slum.

Beautiful Field Kenya

Beautiful Kenyan countryside, just down the road from the construction site of Hope Academy, which is 4 miles from Kibera. Such a stark contrast in such a short distance.

Kenyan Land Owner

The farmer who owned the land that is now the building site for Hope Academy.

I’ve written a guest post for the Good Must Grow blog about my February trip to Kenya. I hope you’ll check it out!

I'm Jamie, a 50-year-old Nashville working mom desperately seeking a few moments of Zen and zinfandel. I love to travel, find great deals, and talk with my hands. My husband and I have two daughters, three dogs, one cat and too much laundry. Email me at blondemomblog @ gmail.com.

    Such a beautiful place! Looks like the perfect site for the girl’s school!
    I am glad they are doing this!
    I look forward to reading more about your trip and seeing all the pictures. =)

    I am so inspired by this! Educating girls/women is something I strongly believe in. It makes a world of difference to them, their families, and their communities!
