We are so delighted to announce that, thanks to a very generous donation, we have met our goal for Maisha Africa! This will allow them to build a piggery (pig farm). This pig farm will provide nutrition for the children in their care, manure for farming, and provide ongoing sustainability.
We could not have done this without ongoing purchases through Little Red Hen Soap and the donation from our very generous donor. Thank you all!
Stay tuned to hear about our upcoming project in Haiti!
I am so pleased to introduce you to Maisha Africa. This is the organization that much of our fundraising is for. I met their director, Praise, several years ago on my first trip to Africa. I was so impressed with her life story and her passion for the orphan that I knew I wanted to be a part of what she was doing. I am thrilled to be a part of helping her with her life’s work.
Maisha means Life! What could be better than bring life and living life with those who are vulnerable?
This is what Maisha has to say about themselves.
” We walk alongside children and youth so that they can achieve their full potential. We do this by impacting their lives, families and communities.
We care for orphans and vulnerable children, provide education and invest into holistic community development and family strengthening in order to prevent orphans and give children hope and a future.
All projects serve our goal of children growing up in loving, stable homes, receiving a good education and medical care. This will enable the children to positively impact their country when they grow up. At the same time, we endeavour to change the children’s environment by investing into their lives, families and communities. “
Our hope is to help Maisha Africa start a piggery. This will allow them to become sustainable. By purchasing your soap needs from Little Red Hen Soap you can be a part of making this a reality. Thank you for partnering with us.
*A few of our soaps are custom made for adoptions and other fundraisers and are not part of the Maisha Africa fundraiser. These soaps are clearly marked.
Our beautiful family has chosen to withdraw from their adoption. It was a painful decision and not one made lightly. Our prayers are with them as they move forward.
I wanted to give you a little background on the family we are helping. This beautiful family has been in process since 2013 to bring their children home. They have had adoption losses, been swindled out of their money and had their children’s birth country halt adoptions. It’s been a long and expensive road. The Congo has begun allowing adoptions and the Leist family wants to be ready when it’s their turn.
Every purchase from Little Red Hen will help them fund their adoption. With 100% of the profits going towards the costs, this can make a significant difference.
If you would like to donate directly you can do so on their Go Fund Me page or by sending a check to
