Kyla Jay’s 1st Birthday
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
On July 6th, 2018 our lives were forever changed through the arrival of our daughter Kyla-Jay. Less than 18 months younger than her brother Elijah, she turned our already-blessed family into a complete one. Her outgoing, impulsive fearlessness captivated our hearts the moment we laid eyes on her, while her tenacity, compassion and curiosity are traits she shares with her brother.
As we reflect on how blessed we are to have Kyla-Jay in our lives, safe, healthy and happy, we are continually reminded of those who do not have what she has. And this is why we have chosen to dedicate Kyla-Jay’s 1st birthday to supporting the Graduating the Poor project.
This project identifies the 100 of the poorest in the selected area and works with them over 2 years to graduate them out of absolute poverty. The project is designed to address their immediate needs while also investing in their longer-term training, development and planning. It helps families secure the basic things like food and access to healthcare, but it also aims to build their financial resilience through savings.
This is our way of channeling some of the blessings Kyla-Jay has received, and been to us, to those who need it most.
