Received my first letter

Hi everyone,

I'm very happy to announce that I have received the first letter from my Rafiki, Cecilia Mumbe, yesterday!

I'm eager to post my reply tomorrow, and start developing what I hope to become a true and beautiful friendship.

My daughter Carolina, who is 8, was as excited as I was. Maybe MamaAfrica can find a Rafiki in her age group with whom Carol can correspond? That would be wonderful, and a real eye opener for different cultures, and ways of living!

Thank you!!!

Carolina is going to be excited about the prospect of getting a new friend in Kenya.

I also made a donation on Project for Africa site do help a bit with the writing supplies.

Thank you for all your efforts. It's amazing what people can achieve when they have the will, and join efforts. I think, especially we women have that ability, to build bridges!
