Being one of the founder’s of a community based in Nairobi (Generation Why Community Based Organization), one of the things I really wondered when this whole pandemic began was, “Who is going to provide for the kids in children’s homes especially if they do not have constant donors?” It is with this in mind that we as Generation Why began a campaign to raise funds to provide for the children’s homes we work with.
