I went to Zambia last January to visit the children at the Mama Bakhita Home and make art with them. It is an experience that I always treasure. The children love to express themselves by painting and working with clay, with no one telling them if their work is right or wrong. What a pleasure it is to see their interactions, and their joy in the freedom to create.
My support of the Mama Bakhita Cheshire Home began in 2002. It is the only facility in the Livingstone area that educates and cares for children with cerebral palsy and other debilitating conditions. To raise money for the Home, during my yearly visits I purchase items at the nearby Victoria Falls Craft Market to bring back to the U.S. to sell.
I am having 2 weekends of porch sales at my home in West Tisbury: July 21 - 22 and August 19 - 20. Please follow the African Craft signs that begin at New Lane in West Tisbury to our home at 20 Road to Great Neck.
You will love these uniquely beautiful and useful crafts, and your purchase will help support young people with disabilities and their families.
