Congratulations Charity.

On November 2nd 2018 I attended Karatina University in Kagochi, Kenya for the 6th Graduation ceremony in support of Charity Kathure.
This project has supported Charity since 2014 when I met her at Pepo la tumaini in Isiolo. Back then she was mainly doing housework with no chance of attending university due to her financial situation.
I managed to raise enough money to pay her fees and living costs whilst studying and mentored her throughout the course of her studies.
It's amazing to see Charity achieve her dream and go forward in life with a degree in criminology and social sciences under her belt.
Anything is possible in this world with hard work and dedication.
Congratulations to all the students at Karatina university and good luck in the future.

Ponte City Kids

Today we visited Dlala nje, an organisation that works with young people who live in Ponte Tower in Hillbrow Johannesburg.
This building is one of the most prominent in the city and has a rich history as it was previously hijacked. Today it is managed by Trafalgar Housing in the city.

The young people focused on creating images for t shirts and using imagery like African masks and an image of Ponte tower which we painted onto the shirts.

Thanks to our host Gill and zet and all those who took part.
