We volunteered from the 3rd Dec - 9th Dec at Cara Girls Project. The stories behind why these girls are at the centre were so horrific but their spirits, humility, love and togetherness that they showed was something to be admired.
We will be promoting a number of charitable causes along our MOKU Beach journey and our charity page will be dedicated to providing information about the charities and how you can get involved.
We thank all those that lent a helping hand to help funds go towards Cara Girls Project, after living there, we were made to feel like it was home. The spirit of Cara is that of togetherness. We can inform you that your funds went towards paying for a handcrafted Kenyan designed, energy saving charcoal convection oven. It bakes, roasts, toasts or steams. The Kenyan Ceramic Jiko was designed through efforts of local and international agencies and many concerned people. Today, the stove is so popular that it is used in over 50% of all urban homes and about 16% of rural homes in Kenya. Furthermore, its use has now spread to neighboring African countries, and variations of the KCJ can now be found in homes in Uganda, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Malawi, Niger, Senegal, and Sudan. It's amazing how far a good idea can go!
