We also value the feedback that you have shared in regards to different projects and activities and how these have impacted lives across cultures. Some of you have pictures and stories of Mt. Elgon Self-Help Community Project at heart and on the walls of your houses. And some of you have always remembered to say a prayer of peace, protection, joy, love, compassion, comfort, success, and so on each day. And some of you have chosen to adapt a child.

We want to say that you are our pillars of strength. We are exceedingly honoured and humbled to associate with you and we are grateful to almighty God for making these connections possible. And in the same spirit, we pray for God’s Blessings upon your families and the works of your hands.
