The Kenyan Experience:
It is estimated that 15% of the Kenyan population affected by HIV/Aids disease live in the Nyanza Province.
Over 100,000 children in Nyanza Province have been left orphans due to the loss of life from HIV/Aids disease.
The youth population in Nyanza Province has been decimated by HIV/Aids disease and therefor low economic activity is the reality.
Daniel Simba and the Imani Initiative Development Group are working towards a brighter future for this community and are currently building a much needed school for the children of Nyanza Province.
With 20 years experience in storytelling and educating children of all ages, Lee-anne has received rave reviews which are set to continue across around the globe with this unique invitation to take her book to Kenya. A heartwarming gift and a humanitarian alliance that could help open hearts and transform the world through love in action. http://www.wholeheartedwellness.com.au
