How wonderful to take steps to support change in the life of someone else, especially that of a child. My good friend, Jane Shakespeare has been working tirelessly to support change in the lives of orphaned and disadvantaged kids in Sierra Leone since 2015. Jane first visited Sierra Leone in 2006. The children have remained close to her heart and she is now in a position to offer support and help where it's most needed. So, in partnership with her, we can offer a $10 donation on the sale of each Kenana Knitter Jungle Fun Critter. But first, here is a little more on the charity she has founded.
The Fig Tree Children work for orphans and other underprivileged children in Sierra Leone. We help provide food, clothing, shoes, school materials, medicines and we pay school fees. We are focused on helping underprivileged children and their families who have no other ways of providing for themselves.
We find a sponsor for one of our benefactor children and help provide funds towards supplying basic materials including food (rice) that they need every month. We believe that it is very important for us to locate those orphans and underprivileged children who cannot access food, basic healthcare and education. Without an education we all know that these children will not have a future to look forward to.
Our program is a developmental one which provides food, clothing, shoes, medicine and school materials to orphaned and underprivileged children in Sierra Leone. We believe that every child deserves to feel safe, be loved and have access to basic healthcare and education. Education is key to bringing this country out of poverty.

And the really great bit of news is that you can be part of this change by either buying a little jungle fun Kenana Knitter critter ($10 from the purchase goes to The Fig Tree Children) or, if you want to, even sponsor a fig tree child and see their lives transformed.
It's up to you.
