’s possible to find hope anywhere.
The “bone guys” make jewelry from animal bones, and the work they do is beautiful.
The day we were there, a woman from Toronto, Jacky Habib, had brought a group of people to make their own jewelry.
For a small fee, they learned how to make several articles for themselves, with a lot of help from the bone guys.
Finally we made a home visit. This mother has a college education and is a school teacher in Kibera. Her husband had been a matatu driver before he was injured and is now unable to drive. Besides the couple and their two children, Shadrach and Mary, two other people live in this house. I was almost in the doorway when I took this picture, so that’s pretty much the entire place.
Yet, there is always Hope.
