We are happy to announce that our Gen-1 scholarship recipients have returned home from their six week internship in Kenya!
Azia and Kanisha began their work in the SOTENI Kenya office in Nairobi, then traveled to three rural Villages of Hope to assess sponsored students, attend support group meetings, help out in the medical dispensary, and so much more. Azia recalls, "My favorite memory from the trip was helping a support group get buckets so they could safely clean water. The members were so thankful for the buckets. Now that I am home, I feel much more appreciative for what I have." The girls were fully immersed into Kenyan culture in a way that will surely have a positive impact on them for years to come.
Check out our Facebook page to see pictures of Azia and Kanisha in Kenya. You can also watch our video leading up to the trip... and stay tuned for more videos to see what the girls say about their experience!
