Season's Greetings 2015

Wishing our Amsha Africa Foundation team, friends, and family health and happiness this Holiday Season and throughout the New Year.

Thank you for your support in 2015 and hope you all have a healthy and blessed 2016!

This is a holiday card project piloted by Katie Burke of San Francisco in 2009, in partnership with Amsha Africa Foundation. For this project, children in the U.S. make holiday cards for children in Kenya, and Amsha Africa brings them to Kenyan orphanages. These are the cards the children made this year.
