We had our grand opening of Nyota yesterday. It was such a PARTY!! The outside was festooned with orange and green and white ribbons. Over 100 people attended – local dignitaries, people from the hospital, the bank, the Children’s Dept., the contractors who built the home, and on and on. We had singers and we all joined hands and danced around the room. There was a huge cake with the Nyota logo on top. I unveiled the plaque, dedicating Nyota to Wallace and Margaret McCain, without whose faith and belief in us this would not have been possible. The children were all dressed up and there was a feast afterwords. But best of all, at the end of the day it rained and a spectacular rainbow appeared that covered the sky. It was a great omen.
I have to make this short as its starting to rain and i can only get a signal outside. Will write again tomorrow!
