The crops are growing at the greenhouse at Watoto Wema Home in Kenya! Our sustainable greenhouse project is designed to benefit the 57 children who live there, by targeting their nutrition and education. 40% of the veggies grown will go towards supplementing the children’s diets and the other 60% will be sold in the markets. The profits from selling the vegetables will pay for the secondary school fees of the older children. We’re looking forward to the first harvest of these crops!

“Wherever you stand, be the soul of that place.” This quote from Rumi is our intention for the week. In our busy world, it is so easy to forget to be present and in the moment. Life is constantly trying to teach us important lessons, but we have to be open to listening and to live life on purpose. Fully embrace life- moment by moment!

“Don’t be content in your life just to do no wrong. Be prepared every day to try to do some good.” -Sir Nicholas Winton Rest in Peace Sir Nicholas Winton, who saved 669 children from the Holocaust. He risked everything to rescue hundreds of children and he did it selflessly, never speaking of his heroic deeds. Sir Winston’s passing last week reminds us of all the good in the world, even in the face of unspeakable tragedy and that one person really can make a difference. http://goo.gl/V0yieW 

What a difference a few years make! This #tbt is from our 2013 trip to setup the aquaponics tilapia farm in Honduras! Since then, the Hogar de Amor home has grown hundreds of tilapia and their tanks are currently filled to the brim with fish. This project saves the home money that they would otherwise spend buying healthy fish and veggies in the market, and they use the money saved to pay for their security guard who keeps the home and children safe, a necessary need in the volatile country. 

Help us raise the other half of our goal for the solar panel installation in the Arias Home of Hope! This orphanage is a safe and loving environment for 39 children who were born with HIV/AIDS, providing them with the medical attention they so desperately need. Because the virus is so highly stigmatized in India, these children were shunned from their families and communities. Our project will help cut the electrical costs for the orphanage, thereby providing additional nutrition essential for the children’s health. Please help us to alleviate the cost for the home and provide a better quality of life for these children! #getinvolved #giveback #makeadifference #socialgood #inspiration #hopeworldwide #india #positivity #sustainable #nutrition #impact #solarpower (at Link in bio. )

We’re excited to introduce a new series of photos from the eyes of our children! We left one of our cameras at the Arias Home of Hope located in Acharapakkam, India. For the next few weeks you will be able to experience the beauty life has to offer from their perspective. All the children of the Arias Home are HIV/AIDS positive, but they continue to inspire us everyday with their courage. #LittleLens #hopeworldwide #India #smile #inspire #inspiration #positivity #community
