“ If I were rain, That joins sky and earth that otherwise never touch, Could I join two hearts as well?” - Tite Kuto
I remember well the day that we received a message of dire weather from our friends in Kenya. We often do not know why or how a particular memory stays with us long after the actual event or conversation. I do not know why this particular message stuck with me. I only know that it did and it has and it will, to this day and evermore.
This is a very personal blog. I thought about writing of the recent accomplishments of The Mama Ada Foundation, such as our exciting and upcoming trip with agricultural experts to visit farm friends in Kenya. To be sure, there is much to celebrate at The Mama Ada Foundation. However, something else tugs at me today. You see, we were not able to raise funds for all the students who needed Mama Ada scholarships this year; we so wish that we had been able to give more young people a gift for education. We worked very, very hard to raise lots of funds and it wasn’t enough for all of the students who desperately want to go to school.
