The season for hats, jackets and blankets has already begun. A smiling Adamson confirms this. Evenings and mornings can already be really cold. 2 degrees at dawn is no longer African summer, but full-blown winter. However, in Zambia winter does not mean that it is grey, dull and gloomy. It is still green, especially in Kasisi.
The fruit trees, flowers and green grass are all thanks to the sisters who, by creating a garden around the home, teach the kids to take care of their surroundings and recognise the beauty in nature. This is not at all obvious, as no one tends gardens in the villages. A flower here usually just means that there will be fruit, and does not inspire admiration.
So it’s green in Kasisi. Here is Boyd who was caught watering the lawn in the morning, Catherine sneaking ripe oranges (the green ones are perfect, so we’re not surprised), and Rita and her pet in a green entourage.
So green and full of smiles is our Kasisi. Full of smiles also thanks to you!
The metal cots and worn-out mattresses have lulled generations of Kasisi kids to sleep, but are now in desperate need of replacement.
Our dream is to make the babies’ bedrooms look like a truly homely, safe environment that is associated with warmth. Will you help us make this dream a reality?
