Throw Back: HHK Friendship

#TBT to the Hogar de Amor Home in Honduras! We loved visiting with the kids here and seeing the very special friendships that exist! Like kids everywhere, these girls love playing and spending time with their friends. We’re proud to continue to work with this home with our tilapia farm, which makes sure they get protein in their diets!  

A year after the first Girl Summit was held, the organization Girls Not Brides looked at the progress made on the goals created at the summit. As their infographic shows, they have been working on ending child marriage through empowering girls, advocating on their behalf and working in the communities, among other efforts. All of us at Kitechild fully support the Girls Not Brides movement and know that if we all work together, we can make this a better place for all children to grow up.

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 

Good news coming from united-nations: More girls are in school than ever before! And according to unicef, if every child learns to read there will be 171 million less people living in absolute poverty. Our sustainable projects work to generate profits that are used to pay for education for children around the world, like our greenhouses and dairy cows in Kenya & our chicken farm in India. Change, not charity is the key! mdgs.un.org
