Work is a part of life here on the Mission. We all do what we can to help around the place. Our older boys work on the farm, help in the workshop or assist our carpenter. The younger ones pick up litter, sweep leaves or take out the garbage… but it is our Big Girls who have the most consistent and demanding jobs to do. Each day they ensure our food is cooked, clothes are washed and youngest children are bathed and dressed. All this is done while balancing school life and social life. It is certainly not easy to be a Big Girl here.
We are so grateful for everything they do for us. For every loaf of bread. For every toddlers brushed teeth. As a special treat for them we would love to make a few sofa beds for their hostel living room. Normally sofas are quite expensive but recently while Clifton was away on holiday in Nepal he saw a design for a comfortable sofa that we can easily reproduce in our workshop.
Help us help our girls to kick up their feet after a long day. Each sofa will cost about $120 to make (including cushions). We will start with 2 for this project but hope to make 1 more after that.
