30 New Girls Welcomed to HTN!

 
We want to introduce you to 30 new girls at HTN. The girls are little, very little… the youngest is three and the oldest is only five.
 
Yet even at this young age, they have gone through incredible hardships. All were orphaned due to HIV/AIDS or tribal violence. They spent their young years as part of a Massai tribe, in an area without clean water or electricity. The nomadic lifestyle and arid land makes it very difficult for food to grow, so little ones without parents are incredibly vulnerable to starvation and exploitation. Most would have been denied an education and would have been married off at a young age, as early as eight years old! 

When we heard the stories of 30 young girls without parents, we knew that something needed to be done. These beautiful girls are now part of the Heroes family. Their futures are bright and they are in an environment where they can learn and grow. It’s overwhelming to think of how their lives have changed. This is wonderful, this is true impact. This is the story you are writing. Thank you for your support!
