Ok all, apologies for the blogging hiatus, but I really had to get back on board to share with you all the awesome party we had to celebrate 8 years of Kids First while we were back in Uganda. We went to a waterfront "resort" on Lake Victoria, and thanks so some generous sponsors (who specifically requested their donations be used for something fun!) we were able to throw an awesome party with great food, some dancing, and even 2 fizzies per kid (this is a big deal). Of course we had speeches too, and an awesome cake made by Joshua's fiancee. Everyone came dressed in their absolute best, and we had a blast.
It was actually really cool to look back on how far Kids First has come and to remember all those who have given their help and time along the way. A simple yet powerful dream to help women support themselves and give their kids a future. Simple doesn't mean easy, and it hasn't been. But despite any trouble we have had, Kids First has continued to grow and it's awesome to hear the testimonies of those who have had their lives changed through Kids First.
Here at Kids First we all have something to say, so this blog will be updated by members of our team as our work progresses to keep all of you in the loop!
