For us, brushing our teeth is routine. For the children in Kiptingo, brushing their teeth was previously a foreign word. The Malaika Project is determined to start with the smallest things for us to make a lasting difference in the Kenyan village.
So we start with the teeth, because a dentist is simply expensive by Kenyan standards. With education and the simplest steps, we can prepare children for life ahead.
Toothbrush, toothpaste and plenty of vitamins for the body and development we brought from Austria and distributed to them on site in the group.
There was also a surprise for some of the Malaika kids: their godparents gave us gifts and mementos for the godchildren.
The joy was huge!
