How to Make a Difference and Change Your Life

Were you ever bogged down with a challenge? 

And maybe you felt bad until you heard about someone who had much bigger problems.

Artillery fighting in the Ukraine goes on.World powers are joining forces to pursue ISIS.  Ebola hemorrhagic fever challenges West Africa as the mysterious enterovirus - D68 sickens children in North America.

People are experiencing major challenges in every country.Yet for some the biggest decision today is I Phone 6 or I Phone 6+

Each of us has the power .....

I believe  that we are part of the web we call Life and each of us has the power to bring about amazing changes in ourselves and in our world.

In Kenya a few years ago one man realized that he could bring about big changes. Mr. Jared Akama Ondieki  founded the CEPACET and AKAMA foundations to promote peace, human rights, social justice, fight poverty and provide socio-economic  empowerment for the women in Western Kenya.
With these goals today AKAMA and CEPACET  run schools for children and provide socio-economic development projects for Kenya.

The Kenyan school system requires that all students who attend school wear a uniform. There are large numbers of orphan children living with guardian families.

Many guardian families cannot provide the proper school attire. Without uniforms children may have to drop out.  Or worse if they wear a soiled or torn uniform they may face ridicule from their classmates which can be so painful.

The Akama Foundation teaches young women to become seamstresses. After completing their training these woman receive a sewing machine. With this they generate income to support themselves and their families while providing inexpensive quality clothes for their community. 

As these ladies earn new income they sew school clothes for the free school uniform distribution program.

The Akama Foundation has provided 300 school uniforms over the past 3 years. It is now expanding its program to new areas and has set a goal of providing 30 more teenage mothers with sewing machines and training. Each sewing machine costs $18,000 Kenyan shillings or a little over $200 USD.

If you are facing your own challenge today think about how much power you have inside yourself and how you can change the world by offering to help.

There are wonderful programs everywhere and people need support in so many places. Perhaps you have a giving intention that is dear to your heart. I believe we can follow our inner guide to know where to make the difference for changing the world and changing ourselves.
