neema pic 2On June 5th, 2016, inspired by four big-hearted leaders, participants walked to raise funds for Neema House orphanage in Tanzania. Neema house is situated on very rough terrain and a walking path is needed so that the babies and young children living there can walk and be walked safely. The funds raised from this event will go toward building this path.

The day of the walk, severe thunderstorms and hail were expected and we feared the worst for the event. But, happily, the storm held off, and our inspiring leaders lead the way as we walked for Neema House. There was a baked goods table as well as a fun raffle which also featured brightly colored bracelets made by the orphans at Neema House. One of the highlights of the day was the speeches given by our young leaders. They spoke beautifully about why they were inspired to help Neema house and how the funds raised by the walk would do that. The girls also thanked their event sponsor, Waves Pool Service, for their generous donation to this very worthy cause! Touching Heart is so proud of Rylee, Laura, Jaylyn and Regan, not only for all your hard work, but also for your caring hearts and love for others. We are inspired by you!
