New Voices for a New World
This a powerful and moving story. It brought tear to my eyes but also made me happy for this little girl who has grown up to a be a powerful woman who can now teach other young girls that they can become more than a mother, if they choose to.Thank you for sharing.
Tara,It brought tears to my eyes too! I'm so glad you liked it. Doesn't it brighten your day to know that there are amazing women in the world who are changing their own lives and improving their communities?!Jocelyn
J -This was beautiful. Note, she used the traditions of her village to gain their support by going to the elders before sunrise. Smart.I also can't help think that the true hero is her father. I am sure that there are many more girls with dreams like hers than fathers who agree to bend the rules and support them.I don't mean to take anything away from Kakenya's success! But part of the power of the message to me is that her family and the whole village helped her take that first step. Could be a fundraising message in that....-smc
Thanks, Steph! I agree. The father(s) in Kakenya's communities are also heroes in this story!XO, J
