I am happy to announce that my choice for next year’s charity quilt project is “Kulea Childcare Villages”.
Violence, poverty and disease have left almost 6 million orphans in Kenya and Tanzania. Only 2-3% of these children have adequate care, housing and school. The vast majority are living in fear, hunger and without hope. At Kulea Childcare Villages, we rescue orphans and raise them in a loving home, providing each child with excellent education and health-care. In addition, we help vulnerable children access education. We are developing our first village in Tanzania to be home to hundreds of orphans. We have also identified land to start our work in Kenya. Kulea Childcare Villages is approved by IRS 501(c)3.
