Africa // Kenya

Dorcas is an inspiration to me, for she has such a positive attitude and yet has endured so much pain and hardship. At age 20 Dorcas and her 8 siblings were left orphaned. Dorcas took full responsibility for her 15 year old younger sister. Through Dorcas’ jewelry making business she is putting her sister through school. On school breaks she is training her in jewelry making.

Dorcas dream is to help other orphans, because she knows how it feels to be alone. Dorcas loves to help others that are poor. She presently employs 3 men in her neighborhood. Her dream is to have so many jewelry orders so she can employ many people.
