Making Dolls for Kibera

A quick photo update of the dolls being made for 300 children in Kibera. What an amazing a unique gift we will be bringing with us this year! Thank you to Cathy and her band of knitters!


  1. Hi Miss Paige,
    I'm a 12 year old who thinks what you're doing is AWESOME! I saw the dolls people are making to support your work in Kibera and I thought I'd tell you about something I'm doing. A few years ago I spent Thanksgiving making new friends in Kibera. I wanted to do something to partner with my new friends and make sure they have the chance to get a good education like I am. I think education is going to help us end extreme poverty. I started making these Denim Dudes from recycled materials https://www.facebook.com/deniimdudes#!/pages/Denim-Dudes/149958635020991 (they're not dolls -- but dudes ;)) The money I raise goes to provide an education and other needs for kids like me who live in Kibera. I just played my first live gig (I play guitar and sing) and people had the chance to make Denim Dudes to join the effort. If your friends want to use the patterns to help with your work in Kibera they can.

    You may have met my older brother at some time - he's a 19 year old author and abolitionist working to end slavery. www.zachhunter.me He was on the trip with me to Kenya. We both saw how important it is for girls to be educated, especially when we visited the Masai Mara.

    If you want to message me my email is denimdudes@gmail.com I know God is really excited about what you're doing for his kids in Kenya. Your friend, Nate (this is my mom's google account)
