Thank you, donation for Ruth we have successfully finished

We thank all the amazing people from the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Kenya for their great support and help. To date, we have collected the necessary amount for Ruth. If we can also arrange support from Kenya's NHIF insurance and the Faraja Cancer Center, not only the entire treatment but also all the necessary expenses (stay in Nairobi all the time, travel expenses, food, etc.) will be reimbursed, which would otherwise burden the family. We will continuously communicate detailed information from the treatment as well as the drawing of finances.

Peterson successfully graduated from university. The feeling of joy and pride of the adoptive parent was enormous.

You will certainly agree with me that the feeling of joy and pride is probably justified! My wife and I would like to thank you for the work that allowed us to help one African person to change his life fundamentally! Perhaps we can not quite well imagine how.


We present the stories of Everlyne and Danson

Promoting education makes sense! Support the Distance Adoption program and send one of the children to school from January.

Give your loved ones original gifts from our FairTrade Shop!

For example, soapstone elephant or hippo for luck. A gift made in Kenya by stonemasons Kisi and decorated by women from the Island of Hope will surely please everyone. Your money spent on it will support children from the Island of Hope where we return 100% of earnings.


When you have no idea what you are getting yourself into

It all started last Giving Tuesday, that is, November 27th 2018. I, a Serbian from South Africa, was part of the Student Council at my university and agreed to help set up an event for this relatively unknown NGO. They help women and children in Africa, which sounds very typical, but the reality was far from it. First of all, Africa is not a country and the founder of the NGO, Dana Feminová, does well to remind others that her project is based in Kenya.


Introducing the story of Regina

Regina's parents are old, her mother sells water and earns about 3,000 Ksh per month (about 600 CZK) for rent and food. Regina's sister is mentally disabled, and Regina has foot problems and cannot walk properly, so she uses a wheelchair. Regina studies International Relations, a four-year bachelor program, at United States International University – Africa.

Adoptive parent’s feedback

I’m really glad to help Hulda this way. I got the video with Hulda last week. We were all excited at home. It was nice to see her happy and that she appreciates education she gets. She’s really motivated and she knows that a good education means a better life for her and her family. When we watch this video, then it all makes sense to us.

Visit of our adoptive daughter Metrine in Nairobi

In 2004, we began to consider the long distance adoption of a child in Africa. After searching for information on the Internet and meeting with Dana Feminova at the Center Narovinu in Prague, we adopted a girl from Kenya called Metrine Midesha, who was eight years old.15 years have passed, Metrine with our financial support completed primary and secondary school and furthermore she studied tourism management.


My trip to Kenya, October 2018

Na konci září jsem se vydala na moji již třetí cestu do Keni, a již podruhé jsem se rozhodla ji absolvovat sama. První část mé dovolené jsem se rozhodla strávit v Mombase, a to z toho důvodu, že jsem nechtěla, aby mne má Christine viděla vyčerpanou z mé práce, zkrátka jsem chtěla nabrat sil, opálit se na pláži a následně, poslední týdny s ní strávit na Rusinga Island.
