Motivational Monday with JK Rowling

Happy #MotivationalMonday! This quote comes from the lovely and wise JK Rowling and we couldn’t agree more: “Age is foolish and forgetful when it underestimates youth.” We know that children hold all the potential to make to create meaningful change, which is why we work so hard to support children around the world. All kids have the possibility to grow into the next global peace-maker. Let’s never underestimate the potential in any child! Find out how you can partner with us in this mission: kitechild.org

This thetelegraph piece gives insight into what it’s like growing up in one of the most dangerous countries in the world: Guatemala. Unicef Goodwill Ambassador Michael Sheen talks about his experiences with Guatemalan children like Kenneth, as they try their best to grow up under extreme circumstances. As Michael Sheen writes, “Every child has the right to be happy, to be safe and to be protected.” Read the whole story: http://goo.gl/JEaKpz

A #tbt to our first trip to India several years ago! It was such a privilege to meet the kids and get to see firsthand their personalities and individual spirits. We have continued to work with Ashirvad Home through our chicken farm project, which is designed in such a way to generate income that benefits the nutrition and education of the 79 kids. The original investment was in the building of the farm and now the chickens will be bred and sold in the market, while some stay at the farm to continue the project. The profits from selling the chickens in the market is allocated towards the health and education of the children by covering the costs of fresh fruit and computers for the home. We love looking back at where we started with this project and looking ahead to what the future holds!

Did you know that if a child’s mother can read, that child is twice as likely to survive past age 5? Educating a girl creates a ripple effect of positivity on the health, well-being and economic empowerment of the world. Let’s give our girls the education they deserve and it’ll help ensure that all children are cared for and given the best life possible! ow.ly/PwIs2 

A blast from the past! A #tbt to Kitechild’s trip to Kenya in 2012. We loved getting to meet the beautiful children, like this handsome boy from the Good Samaritan Home. Each and every child touched our hearts and taught us so much about Kenyan culture. During that trip, we met with community leaders who helped us assess the most pressing needs and informed our decisions regarding future sustainable projects. We have since successfully launched 9 projects such as solar panels and dairy cows in Kenya. We can’t wait to see what the future holds!
