Every little girl deserves a pretty dress

When Dano Lister, Greif Corporation, came to Kenya he met the little girls of Parkishon. When he returned home to his family he told his daughter Kennedy about the little girls. He told her how they didn’t have enough clothes. Kennedy decided to do something to help. She started a project called Upendo. Upendo is Swahilli for love. She began making pillow dresses. She recruited others to help her including her Grandmother.

When Dano returned to Kenya, he brought the dresses for the little girls of Parkishon. Pastor Hirbo gave them the dresses for Christmas. You can see on the smiles of the girls how happy they are that Kennedy cared enough to make a difference in the lives of these little girls.

On her flyer Kennedy wrote:

Many small people, who in many small places do many small things can alter the face of the earth. (Transcribed on the Berlin Wall).

Thanks Kennedy for helping the little girls of Parkishon have pretty dresses.
