Off to a Great Start in the New Year!
As 2014 is underway, we are grateful for the progress we have made this past year and are filled with promise for the year ahead. We could not make it all happen without the support of our sponsors and donors…thank YOU!
Since mid-December we have been back in Tanzania working our three program areas:
Your Sisters Orphanage for Girls
A new year and a wonderful new school. The girls have started at St. Margaret's and already we are seeing improvements in their studies. Read our "Latest Update" on our Orphanage page for more details. Expanded bedroom accommodations are still planned for the girls once we have additional funding.
Creative Community Program
Our program room is complete! We are now able to help more women learn or improve their sewing skills so that they may become more economically self-sufficient and give them hope for a brighter future. Already this year, we have interviewed and welcomed eight more ladies into the program. Read our "Latest Update" on our Creative Community Program page. In addition, we will be introducing three new creative Your Sisters products to compliment our signature Heart Bags.
Volunteer and Travel Program
We will soon be rolling out our new Summer and Winter itineraries. Whether volunteering time at Your Sisters, participating in a women-focused cultural experience, venturing on safari, or climbing up Mt. Kilimanjaro, we have something for everyone. Learn more about our itineraries under "Latest Update" on our Volunteer and Travel Program page.
These are just a few of the activities that we are working on in Tanzania. We head back to the states mid-March and look forward to re-connecting with you to share first hand our stories.
We are excited about the year ahead as we continue to make great strides on our vision at Your Sisters. Together, with your help, we can make incredible things happen.
With our love and appreciation,
Libby and Frank
