I met Sophia at her book launch (Lots of Love Soph) in December last year. It was an encounter that inspired me to help. Sophia is a young girl who has grown up in Pymble. After Uni she decided to travel. With a heart full of love and a head in the clouds, Sophia sets out for an adventure of a lifetime on the other side of the world. In a compilation of emails back to her family, Sophia writes vivid accounts of her experiences abroad over the course of three years... delivering babies in Kenya, having tomato fights in Spain, glimpsing Gordon Ramsey in London, and more. She captures everything she encounters along her journey, including love, loss, and invaluable life lessons.
During her time in Africa, she helped out at and orphanage there and her heart went out to helping the 80 children that spent there time there. The funding was pulled on the school and sophia vowed to help. Being innovative and committed to help these kids she came home and wrote her book with a hundred percent of the proceeds going to the school. Together with the friends she met the school she set up the Kumbuka Project http://www.kumbukaproject.com/ f
The Kumbuka Project, named as such because of it’s Swahillian definition “remember”, is evidence that the children were to remain in the hearts of the volunteers who had worked there. Today, Kumbuka Project is being run by Sophia Goodwin, Brittany Pratt and Jessica Hall. Kumbuka Project’s mission is to support the Centre, ensuring that each child has access to a future and the opportunity to improve their quality of life.
The Children’s Centre is a non-profit charitable organisation that provides support for orphans and vulnerable children, people living with AIDS or whom are HIV positive, senior aged people, people with disabilities, and other vulnerable groups within the community. It has been operating for over 10 years and is legally registered with the government of Kenya. The Children’s Centre began as a free nursery school in 2007, and currently provides free education for over 80 children, along with daily meals.
