Meet Raines ♡

Just wanted to share some photos I received today of my little friend Raines, the most precious little Masai girl I met while visiting nursery and primary schools in a very remote and drought stricken region of Northern Kenya, at the end of March. I was one of a team of three from the Become A Friend charity project. Raines is eight years old but stopped growing and developing some years ago. Because of her ill health she cannot make the daily walk to primary school so she continues to attend nursery school. She’s wearing one of Molly’s dresses in these photos and holding a piece of a safari animal craft kit we sent to her and her lovely little classmates – they LOVED LOVED the kits and are going to spend tomorrow colouring in the animals and reading the ‘Giraffes Can’t Dance’ books we included in the package. I’m travelling back to meet the kids (and their mums) again in October – I’ll keep you updated.

Click to see a short little clip of Raines singing during our March visit… but know that she’ll steal your heart too :)
