I am writing to inform you that today, Thursday 5th march 2009, Mama Anna Muthui held a pen for the first time to write a letter to her Rafiki Elsie who is a member of The Rafiki Club.
According to the Project leader Judy Wanjira who coordinates Project Africa's Rafiki Program in Lungalunga, Mama Anna was so excited about the excise saying that now she can live the dream of her life to learn how to join letters of the alphabet to make a meaning.
Anna who finished writing her first letter demanded that she be taught how to pronounce Elsie's name and went home saying Elsie Elsie so that she may not forget her new friend's name.
What a Joy for all of us. Todate the Rafiki Club has 20 members. Out of these the following have found friends in Lungalunga Kenya
Elsie C matched with Mama Anna Muthui
Janice W matched with Mama Damaris Munini
Taryn S matched with Mama Benettah Muthina
Jennifer A matched with Christine Adam
Suzanne K matched with Mama Judy Wanjira
The following members Kindly await to receive your first letters from the women in Lungalunga.
Project Africa Rafiki day is held once every week. We hope to match other members soon with their rafikis
Thank you all for showing such a great interest in this project and for your participation.
