THE STORY:

LALMBA ASSOCIATION wrote -

"Tembea na Mimi" means walk with me in Swahili. It is a fundraiser for Lalmba Association, a very small non-profit that provides life-saving services to orphans and the poorest of the poor of East Africa. Too often Africa's orphans end up the servants or field hands of extended family, never learning to read or write.  Lalmba ensures that orphaned and at-risk children receive an education, have a place to call home and a place to receive medical care, and are nourished. 

This summer our team will walk about 160 miles in 10 days across Kenya to raise money for the life-changing work of Lalmba.   20 camels will walk alongside us to carry our food and gear.  We will begin outside of Nairobi, traverse the Maasai Mara game reserve with African wildlife, and finally trace the path through rural Kenyan villages to the gates of Lalmba's project on the shores of Lake Victoria, where Lalmba runs a health clinic and orphans' program.  Please walk with us by sponsoring one of our walkers and help us reach our goal.   The walkers are all paying their own way; all funds raised go to support Lalmba's programs in Kenya and Ethiopia.   

Hope arises when one knows that a path out of poverty exists. Lalmba helps clear that path, and then walks (in this case, literally!) with each child as they traverse life's terrain, clearing obstacles that would be insurmountable without help.
