An Unforgettable Christmas at the Waterfalls

The children at Amani celebrated a very special Christmas this year! We generously thank everyone who made this holiday season so memorable for our kids.

This year, the children were able to participate in a series of fun and unique activities. First, they made an environmentally friendly Christmas tree using plastic cans found around the Amani residence. In collaboration with Andrea, they collected these cans, washed them, painted them with different colors, and hung them up with ropes to make a Christmas tree shape. 

We hope that you love their tree as much as we do!

Next, the kids went on an adventure to the waterfalls! This excursion was especially fun due to the recent heavy rainfalls in the area, which resulted in muddier paths. The children found themselves working together to get their tuk-tuks through the mud, and they supported each other when the stones became slippery. Their hard work was rewarded when they reached the top of the falls, where they were able to relax and swim. We can see just how happy they are through the smiles on their faces!

On Christmas day, the children got dressed up in new, festive clothes. Together, they prepared a pizza! This was especially exciting because it was the first time pizza has been prepared at Amani. The children learned how to make it themselves, which made for a memorable evening.

We want to thank everyone for making this such a special holiday for our children. Their happiness shines so brightly because of your continuous support.
