Knock-Knock... we are alive!

Sometimes I tried to find interesting titles to catch your attention, I hope they work :). The reality is that we have so much to share with you, God has been good with us, and thanks to your support we are able to change the lives of so many children in our community. Today we were present at a Rotary meeting in Beverly Hills and the person who started the meeting talked about the importance of showing up! and I agree, the fact that you are showing up to read this e-news makes a huge difference! we welcome any feedback! Thank you for being part of our family!

In today's event we also met Donzaleigh Abernathy an human rights activist and the goddaughter of Martin Luther King Jr. and daughter of Ralph Abernathy. It is amazing to see how we can transform a whole country just by showing love and respect to all. We are still in this journey and we are ready to continue facing todays challenges by educating our young people.
