The Widows in Kenya Basket Project that Lighthouse Trails launched last year as a means to help the widows in Kenya support themselves is well underway. Already we have purchased several batches of baskets, which have been shipped to us and sold to our readers. In addition to paying for the shipping and materials, Lighthouse Trails is also paying the women a fair trade price for their work. As you can read in their testimonies in this slideshow below, being a part of the Basket Project has altered these women’s lives tremendously. If you would like to purchase one of these baskets, you may do so at the Lighthouse Trails webstore. You may buy just the basket by itself by clicking here (they are $34), or you may buy the “gift basket,” which is filled with numerous Lighthouse Trails products (you choose which ones – those are $42 – click here). In addition to the Basket Project, Lighthouse Trails readers are actively involved in supporting the Bryce Homes in Kenya missions project through Understand the Times Bryce Home Project. There are currently 20 Bryce Homes and over 120 children being supported.
