These are the pictures from children at the Shanzu orphanage in Mombasa, Kenya receiving the hand-made Holiday Cards from kids in the US  they received over Christmas, 2015.

Background:

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.

Earth Day is being commemorated on the 22 April. Held around the world, it’s intended as a moment to reflect on and help preserve the health of the planet – but here are five things that you might not have known about the annual event.

Mozambique, which has one of the highest rates of child marriage in the world, unveiled a national plan on Monday to end the practice which affects nearly half of the country's girls.

For the second time in two days, a male lion was killed outside Nairobi National Park. This one, 2-year-old Lemek, was found with a spear through his body.

As coordinator of a shelter for pregnant teenagers in central Uganda, Ritah Ssetumba has seen thousands of young girls struggling to cope with having a child but even she was shocked when an 11-year-old girl arrived pregnant and married.

Can land rights for women drive down child marriage and domestic violence?

With her year-old baby strapped on her back, Christine Lenganya, 25, lifts and balances a 20-litre jerrycan of water on her head.

Amsha Africa Foundation staff led by Janet Shali distributed over 387 pairs of reading glasses to a community living in the Kenyan coastal city of Mombasa.

Many thanks to those who made this possible, including Janet Shali, Vigilance Wambugha, Hon. Muhammed Abbas - Mombasa county Executive Member of the department of Youth, Gender and Sport, Vinny Gambiny, Esther Ingolo -Ministry of Youth, Gender and Sports, Mombasa County Government, Mr Fareed and his wife, Sherry Grigsby (Eyes on Africa) & Tony Abuta (AAF).

This distribution of glasses is part of the ongoing partnership with Eyes on Africa with a mission to provide eyeglasses at no cost to people who would otherwise have no access to them.
