|"Fun" Day with all of the kids from Dream and people from the community.|

The other 2 organizations are centers that work with families in their communities who are struggling in various ways. One is called Amazing Grace and they do emergency rescues for children in unsafe situations and work with their families to prevent the breaking up of a home. They provide counseling services and work with a local church to provide food and other basic needs.
Christian Women Works of Charity is in Kware slums, which is an area in Rongai not far from where I stay. Mary is one of the original women who began CWWC and is well known in the community. Her health is not great right now, so her daughter-in-law Maureen has stepped in to help run everything.
I have now been here for 2 weeks and I have started doing some Rosetta Stone to pick up on more swahili, but the things I am learning are pretty random so we will see how useful it is. Each day I see something I wish I could capture for you all. Today was 6 goats in the backseat of a small sedan just driving down the road. Try to picture it- pretty funny. I have a better idea now of what my job is so I am settling into real work. I plan on taking some breaks from real work, though, and having sleepovers at some of the homes. More updates to come. Thank you all for reading and keeping up with me.
