Women’s Community

Village Project Africa sees women as having a crucial role in supporting and advancing the community. Each one has a vested interest in improving the area in which their children will grow and eventually contribute. As a result, we seek opportunities to support these women through education, health care, economic growth programs, and women’s groups.

At Heritage Academy, we take every opportunity to celebrate! Yesterday was one of those days. It was the day before the Kenya National Exam begins, and our class 8 students received notes and cards from friends in the U.S. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped! From the photos, you can tell the students will cherish these cards for years to come and will long remember the joy they experienced on this day. Volunteers are needed for next year’s card shower.
