Meet Zoe as she and her mom, Carolyn, are getting ready to leave for Kenya, Africa to visit the Machao Orphanage. It's a 23 hours flight! Zoe is not too happy about going but is pretty knowledgeable on Kenya so shares that info with you, the reader. On the flight, Carolyn is continuing her work on proposals for sustained farming for the orphanage so that they can help the children become self-sufficient.
Once in Kenya they still have a three hour bus ride. On the way Zoe talks to a girl named Nadra who is the same age as her, 13. Nadra explains a little about the schools there and the fact that if at the end of Grade 8, your scores are only average or poor then you will go a harambee school which is a school that is not well funded by the government so the education is not that good.
Once at the orphanage, Zoe gets a shock to realize that the latrines (toilets) are not in the same building as the bedrooms. Although they have clean water it has to be fetched from outside. The next day the children (not Zoe) are excited about the plans for having a cow and chickens. All this talk though makes Zoe realized how extremely blessed she has been and she wants to help Nadra fulfill her dream of becoming a veterinarian. How will she do it?
A wonderful story that all children should read or have read to them. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED from our house to yours!
