"What We Care About" - Girls LitClub Kibera

The girls all had their responses to the issues they consider to be important recorded on a colorful chart paper, after they had shared with the whole class as a conclusion to the topic of Kindness. The girls all grabbed glue sticks, newspaper clippings, magazines, markers, and crayons as they went on to stick photographs that represented their ideas as well as thoughts on paper. After their work was neatly put in place, you could see their personal pride of their accomplishments on their delightful young faces.

The way I see it when the girls can go home and be proud of what they have accomplished during that day it creates an early momentum, the finest degree of inner tranquility comes from the development of love and compassion. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being.
