THE STORY:

Zoe will be traveling with Think Kindness to African orphanages in August of 2014. As part of this non-profit, Zoe will be able to help carry out a huge Global Act of Kindness in rural villages in Kenya. Zoe is a junior at Truckee High School and has been inspired by the work Think Kindness is doing in Kenya. Think Kindness is a non-profit organization that inspires measurable acts of kindness in schools and communities around the world.
The trip has several objectives:

Shoes For Children:
Some Children are unable to attend school because they cannot afford the proper ‘necessities’. One of those necessities is a simple pair of shoes. We will be delivering 500+ shoes for elementary, middle and high school children that live in the homes we will be visiting.

Vocational Training:
We want to help the children that we encounter in a long term capacity. Meaning we do not want to come and simply play games, enjoy our time, and leave. Our Team wants to learn their stories, have fun with them, help them learn, empower them, and give them tools that will carry them through this life. We believe that we can make steps to do this by teaching them vocational skills such as; sewing, crocheting, technology, making essentials, etc.

E-Learning Tutors:
Our team will be traveling with several education professionals that will assist in maintaining the strategy we have put into place to help the 190 orphan children better their education through technology. We will working on the maintenance of the computers there while setting up more to be utilized by the students.

Zoe is in need of your Kindness to help spread Kindness around the globe. The trip will cost $3300 of which $500 pays for shipping of the shoes. Therefore, Zoe is requesting your donation of any amount. If she raises greater than $3,300, Zoe will be able to buy supplies for the orphanages. Thank you for your support and enthusiasm as she embarks on this journey!
