Watoto Wa Baraka Children: A Photo Essay

I have wrapped up my stay at Watoto Wa Baraka (WWB) orphanage here in Kenya. I wrote about my anxiety going into my second stay here, and I still don’t know that I’ve formed a conclusion on the second time around: it was definitely different. I have a few more posts about my time at WWB, but for now I want to share with you about these cute kids! In 2008, during my first volunteer stay, I took lots of photos. This time I never even pulled out my SLR camera, but rather, just took a couple of snapshots here and there with my pocket camera. I can’t say I have great photos of them this time around but the kids are so cute that I wanted to share these snapshots. Hope you enjoy :)
