Black Friday, Cyber Monday.
#GivingTuesday on November 27th

Please help us spread the word for #GivingTuesday one week from today. Forward this email to as many people as you know or copy this picture and post to your Facebook page. Last but not least just post this link on any social media and tag it with #GivingTuesday to help us raise awareness and support!

For #GivingTuesday we are raising money for computers for our center. Currently we have a beautiful area in our Library sitting ready for a computers. We need these computers not only for our Primary school but also for our Secondary school kids.

In our Primary school we want to give them the basics. Our secondary kids have to take their JAMB (SAT/ACT equivalent) on a computer. Some have never even used a computer before. Asking them to take an exam on a computer that will determine if they can get acceptance into University when they have never even used one, is just crazy. They become overwhelmed and end up failing the exam. We also want to teach them how to do research and type very well so they are ready for University.

Overall, having computers for our kids to use will help them in the future to excel in University and one day in interviews for jobs. Help us empower our children and spread the word on #GivingTuesday.

DSC_0008Meet Mommy Okikiola and Mommy Favour Girl……yes that is what we call them. These are two of our caregivers in our program. They take care of Okikiola and Favour.

Mommy Okikiola is actually the Aunt of Okikiola. Okikiola was abandoned by her father when she was very young. A few years later she was then abandoned by her mother. When we met Okikiola she was not in school and she was with living with her Aunt. Her Aunt was owing 3 terms of school fees to Okikiola’s school and was voiceless and exhausted.

Mommy Favour got pregnant out of wedlock when she was very young and the boyfriend abandoned her. She was living with her mother and trying to complete  seamstress training. When we met her Favour was not in school because she didn’t have money for school fees. She was voiceless and exhausted.

dsc_0206.jpgA year ago a missionary in Egbe showed me a trivet from Burundi she had bought that was made out of bottle caps and African cloth. She told me I should try and see if I could do this in Egbe with our caregivers. With the help of google I was able to learn how to make these beautiful pieces and train Mommy Okikiola and Mommy Favour. They make one piece about every 3 days and get paid immediately upon completion.

C.A.R.E. Africa’s vision and mission is To Invest Courage into the Voiceless and Exhausted. Empowerment is one of the many programs we offer to accomplish this. Both of these women have been empowered by learning how to make trivets. Help us empower them by purchasing one, two or three trivets for Christmas this year. They are only $8.00 and have the C.A.R.E. Africa label on the back stating that they were handmade in Nigeria. Order now to have yours by Christmas! Visit our Etsy store at to place your order.
