So much is possible when we choose to invest in the life of another person. We believe that each child is important and has value. What if you could change the story of just one child? Read more
The Basics of Saying Hello in Swahili
Besides the standard habari or jambo, I will teach you how to say even ‘good morning’ in Swahili (or good afternoon/evening) plus some other cool stuff that you can use while interacting with fun-loving youthful peers.
THANK YOU Simple Charity and so many others! Here’s a quick update from the field (at Hope Beyond in Kimana, Kenya) on what your incredible, generous, continued partnership has made possible! Read more
This sweet girl is Teresa, an orphan, whose parents were murdered in front of her and her sister due to post election violence several years ago. She lives with Momma Phoebe who cares for dozens of vulnerable children in Bondo, Kenya, on the shores of Lake Victoria. She is JUST ONE little girl who finds joy in simple things, laughter with her older sister, Lucy, and the other children, and peace in knowing that she is loved, wanted, and cared for.
Listen to what JUST ONE can do with their voice!! Brian, a high school senior (at the time of this recording) who leads Simple Charity wrote a spoken word inspired by his work with Just One: Africa. We think you will be totally moved and thoughtfully provoked to see what JUST ONE can do! It might just be the best 3 minutes of your day! Leave a comment and let Brian know how it impacted you!
Brian, later traveled to Kenya, as an intern for Just One Africa, through the Duke Engage program. He spent 10 weeks living in Southen Kenya, working with our partners at Lenkai Christian School.
We have been SO busy these last few weeks before 2014 getting the word out about the hope and life that we are working together to bring to the people of Kenya! Friday we were invited to speak at Piney Grove Middle FCA Forsyth/Dawson Huddle where over 100 kids heard about the life saving difference a water filter can make! Students also purchased over 30 Maasai bracelets and with other donations their impact resulted in over 7 MILLION gallons of clean water heading to much needed children, families, and schools! Way to go world changers! You all are JUST ONE! Read more
On our June trip, this Eastern Kisumu village in Muhoroni received one water filter, and we returned in October to share more. It takes several hours to drive there but totally worth it! We were greeted by the local soccer team and they shared what a blessing the clean water has been to them in their sport! Read more
