Lala Salama

Lala Salama

We have already told you about Baraka and Samweli, two brothers who have been grown up with their grandmother until she passed away. Now they are living alone thanks to the solidarity of the neighbors. They are caring of a small garden, three goats, some chickens, two rabbits and three dogs.

When we went to visit them we promised that they wouldn’t sleep on the floor anymore. This is how Lala Salama born, which in Swahili means ‘sweet dreams’: with a bed and a mattress. And sheets, pillows and blankets…

Then came the other things: fix the roof of the house, a table and two chairs, staff for cooking and eating, solar lamps, curtains to prevent the entry of mosquitoes, including them in ‘Survival´s Kilos’ Project.

When we met them, Baraka and Samweli lived in a small wooden house full of holes through which the cold comes inside during the rainy season. We were able to line the walls inside with sackcloths to prevent the entry of insects and that cold at night. But our dream to these two brothers was bigger: to built a brick and cement house for them.

Thanks of two anonymous people and their generosity, today our dream is real: Baraka and Samweli are living in a house with the necessary conditions to be able to live in it.

Now we will follow the evolution of their studies. When they finish the High School, we will support them starting a small business that allows them to earn their own salary.

“The future is always today. Tomorrow will be late"
