Sheila Chepkoech, Kenya:
I come from Africa, a continent that is very rich in many ways. We are very wealthy in non- material things such as happiness, laughter, joy, contentment, generosity and love among other things. We are also wealthy in natural resources, breathtaking scenery and fertile land. However, we are famously known in the western world for poverty, disease, corruption and war. The truth is, we are more than that and there is our side of the story that is often not told. Although poverty, suffering, pain and poverty exist among us, just like they do in many other societies around the world, what is often left out is the resilience, passion and the sacrifice by which majority of the African people rise amid the difficult circumstances around them. The genuine joy and laughter that emanate from our hearts regardless of challenges surrounding us. And most importantly the hope that is always burning in our hearts and the courage to dare the impossible.
It´s the official start of our crowdfunding campaign today- and we are thrilled to have reached 5% funding in just a couple of hours! A huge thank you to all those early birds who already supported "A Definition of Snow"! Now it´s 95 % to go- so, if you haven´t pledged yet, help us make the book possible by doing so now!
We will be back soon with more updates on the project…
