Spreading the Love with Teen Girls
When beautiful hearts come together great things are bound to happen. At the beginning of April, we held a special event at Dagorretti Girls Rehabilitation Center. Normally the team visits 1-2 times per month for games, mentoring, and group discussions. This special day brought a buzz of activities-Food, laughter and games were the core business.
Over 60 volunteers came together to give the girls quite a memorable day. The girls were divided into groups and used this group’s to discuss about the challenges they have in their lives. Some told their personal journey and what led them to the rehabilitation center and the volunteers took time to counsel and encourage them.
The main speaker of the day set to encourage the girls on their way of life. She gave them her life story which made her succeed despite the life obstacles that came her way. She encouraged them to always see beyond their circumstances. “Your present day doesn’t define your future. You have to work hard for your life,” she said.
The girls and the management of the rehabilitation centre were so happy and asked if we could increase our visits.
And as the Bible commands in 1 John 4:7 Dear Friends, Let us love one another for love comes fromGod. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.
