But, at the moment, I am in Nairobi, Kenya working with Alfajiri to support them in their work to help drug addicted street boys to get off the streets and to kick their addiction through art. At the same time, we will begin a project to provide opportunity for kids from the slum in Nairobi to go to boarding school.
The other day, I spoke with one school and arranged for a visit later this week to see the facility. If the school meets our approval, then we will begin processing the children's paper and get them in before the new school term begins in May.
My hope is that this work in Nairobi will blossom in similar ways that happened in Kolkata. It is quite inspiring to see the drug addicted children and how they create passionate art work based on their lives. It is also inspiring to see the children showing passions to learn and wanting a better education. I am just glad to be able to provide them with the opportunities to dream.
