Laurie

I'm a development work and missionary in Kisii, Kenya. I train and mentor entrepreneurs to impove their business, incomes and the lives of their families. I tutor and mentor children from a large local children's home, showing them love, attention and the joy of learning and reading. With everyone I work with, my mission is to instill skills, hope and confidence. I'm affiliated with the Anglican Church of Kenya and The Reckoning International, an American 501(c)3.

Motivation

LGtA is about empowering and encouraging people, all over the world, to have better, happier lives. I want to encourage the world to have open, adventurous, confident and loving hearts. I want to encourage people to go after their dreams but also find beauty and joy in the everyday. What's stopping you from pursuing your dream? What are the hurdles between you and your goals? Let's encourage each other to be the best, happiest version of ourselves.

How to Help

The project and I survive on donations. Your donations are now tax deductible through The Reckoning International. I don't get paid for what I'm doing. I do it because God wants me to do it and I can't see myself anywhere else. Can you help the Kenyan poor, the children that I work with and I to improve livelihoods?
