Review for Threads of Hope Africa, Inc., Costa Mesa, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband, a general contractor and I joined a Threads team to Kayamandi, South Africa because we wanted an opportunity to have a meaningful hands-on experience with making a difference in the lives of children in South Africa. Our participation with building the first Kuyasa Computer Learning Center was well planned out which enabled us to complete the objective that we set out to accomplish. As keynote speaker to the Pastor’s Wives of Kayamandi, I had the privilege of sharing my own personal experience with the death of my sister Rose and how her strong faith and commitment to helping those in need led me to them on her behalf. The closing message was the empowerment of the women of Kayamandi to take responsibility for all of the children in the community by personally sharing small acts of kindness. We came to South Africa with a rose and we left with a beautiful garden of memories. Threads of Hope, Africa enables you to experience a meaningful act of kindness that will reinforce that each person does make a difference. You will leave saying… Zonke Izinto Zinako Ukwenzeka… “All Things are Possible”!
