Amani ya Juu Women Make My Heart Smile

A few words from Ali, our Creative Director...    The women at Amani ya Juu continue to make my heart smile. My absolute favorite moments of my days here are when I get to stop and chat with a lady while passing her on the steps or share a joke and a high-five or when I get to sit next to her at her sewing machine and ask about her weekend. Chapel time has also been so encouraging. I've never seen Amani's chapel so full as I have on this trip! Every day I get to see women coming to hear from...
