Elinami

Elinami is 24 years old and her little boy is 2 years old.  They were abandoned by her husband and he is already married to another woman.  She had no rent money or food money when she was referred tro Neema Village.  MAP gave her a few used clothes to sell and she was able to sell those.  She will  open a used clothing business now which will give her a good income and she can keep her little boy with her in the shop.  She has been living in teh MAP housing and coming to classes at the Mothering Center at Neema Village.  She attended the sewing class and made the skirt which she was very proud of.  We think she will do very well with a used clothing business.


Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes.
