On 18 September 2010, the SMI-Kakamega team paid a visit to Kakamega Girls Orphanage Home. According to Sister Lucy Mandera, the purpose of the visit was to 'share with the girls and staffs about Sweet Mother International; particularly, to involve them in our Junior Achievement programme. The programme aims to engage actively with the youths, helping them to acquire trade skills and introducing them to business. At the Orphanage, we encourage the girls and thought them how to weave table mats, bread chickens and grow vegetables.'
Below are the pictures taken during our visit, highlighting some of the activities we shared with them:
