May 5. I haven’t read the book Kisses from Kate. Maybe someday I will, but knowing that the jewelry made through Amazima’s vocational program benefits hard working mothers and supports the feeding of over 1600 children in Masese was enough for me to buy a necklace. To me it seems like such a small gesture to buy a necklace. How long does it take one woman to make one necklace—cutting up old magazines, rolling the pieces, letting them dry, stringing the beads? How far does the sale of one necklace go? When I see this necklace today, I pray that at least one child gets to spend a few more hours without being hungry.
