Welcome back to another “Sunday With Sarah.” It’s been more than a month since I’ve posted, and I’ve missed you!
I’ve returned from my AMAZING trip to Africa, and today want to tell you about the Waldorf school I visited for Samburu children in the Laikipia region of Kenya.
After viewing the video, you can learn more about the Samburu Trust‘s efforts to provide health care and education to the Samburu people. You can also make a donation on their website. The children who attend the school pay no tuition, and the school gets no government funding. Having visited, I know that any donation, no matter how small, will be much appreciated!
