Shining Hope for Communities
April 5, 2013

Ask Headmistress Olwande of the Kibera School for Girls about her students and she will tell you "It’s one of my passions, to make them them realize that you didn’t choose, you didn’t sign to be born where you were born but you can choose to go where you want to be in the future." for anyone this would be good acvice, but for these girls this is a necessary philosophy. This is why I love this school and their organization Shining Hope for Communties. It is not only investing in the immediate education and well-being of every girl in the school, and their surrounding worlds, but it is building their foundation for a life of strength and progress. The organization is evolving their situation into something hopeful, something lasting. They are continuing to grow, both the girls and the movement, together. Keep going girls! I'm humbled by you!

Shining Hope for Communities
November 9, 2012

The best way i can describe the visceral sense of hope I feel when I think about shining hope and their Kibera School for girls is to explain my first literal encounter with the school. You walk through the grey, brown streets of kibera and after ten minutes come upon a bright blue and red building. The color contrast alone makes your heart smile. Then you hear it. The sounds of young girls voices soaring high in song above the mud and the muck of the streets below. This is hope. This is the Kibera school for girls. Their work is tireless and in my humble opinion, the most important work on the planet. Keep it up!
