Day 151: Voted for an Impact Award Nominee

On Monday, I received a message from a friend overseas who is currently working with an organization called Life Bloom Services International, a group based in Kenya whose goal it is to intervene and save women and young girls who have been dragged into the sex worker industry.  Headed by Catherine Wanjohi, Life Bloom uses a mentoring model to help reconstruct the women/girls' self-esteem to "pave the way for them to fulfill their life dreams."  Currently, they are looking to build a One-Stop vocational and leadership lraining school for women and girls in Naivasha, Kenya.  One of the ways that they are looking to get the word out for this project is by trying to win the Global Women's Leadership Network's 2012 Impact Award which would allow Catherine to attend the Women Leaders of the World summit this July in California.  So today, for my random act of kindness, I will be voting for Catherine and Life Bloom Services International so that they can get closer to their goal of helping these women and girls out.  If you have a few minutes, please take the time to vote for Catherine's cause as well.
