Last week I got sent out to Bong county to help document the ministry of genders program "Social cash transfer". Which was also supported by UNDP and the world bank.

This program came about after the Ebola epidemic to help house holds that had family members who died during this horrible time.

My aunt (Julia Duncan-Cassell) is the head minister of gender so I was fortunate enough to be by her side to get a closer look into this project.

The house holds received 4500LD (Liberian Liberty dollars) each month for a 6 month period. Which is equal to 50us dollars and is of course not enough money.

Most of these people are even sick or has some form of physical disabilities and can therefore not work.

I have a lot more to say about this topic but will post more in detail later this week.

My country is really suffering and it could get better if we just wanted to change it from the top of the chain.

Very proud and amazed by my father who received the honorable price from the president her self Ellen Johnson Sirleaf last night.

He earned this price! He's a very hard,fair, compassionated and honorable man. And I can only dream to become as great as him one day.

At least I'm trying to go in his footsteps but he has done so much good for Liberia.

During the Ebola he went out in the bushes/djungels with he's own staff to help the less fortunate people who couldn't afford the right hygiene products to stay safe.

He has put more then 2000 kids to school and built a university in Grand Basa, where he grew up.

Yes my father is my idol. He is a kingπŸ‘‘β€οΈ

Yes the kids are living in a moodhouse and they are living with rats.
As you can see on the first picture the black dots on the bed are rat feces...

And that's how these kids are living. It's ridiculous....

I'm disguised when I'm in this room but I had to just act normal and calm because this is their home and they are used to these conditions.

I really have to try my best to do something about this situation. Im pissed!

So it's going slow with the roofing right now. And as you guys can see the raining season has already started and it has destroyed one of the kids houses in the storm.

Now I'm seriously feeling the pressure of fixing these roofs. And it's not easy when I don't really know who to trust.

The care taker for this orphanage is not someone I can trust. So every move I make has to be precise and well monitored.

It's a lot right now.... I'm just kinda frustrated but I will get this done!

Love, AriMinta

I'm finally getting a better picture of what I want to make and how to get it done.

I love the print, colors and the fabric texture. Even though I wouldn't mind if the texture was in a stretch material.

But I'm very excited and in general thinking positively about my designs.

Hopefully I will be going to Ghana next month to get more materials.

Well apparently not all people here want the best for these kids.
The carpenter that I originally was working with tried to "hustle" me with putting a ridiculous price on the bill for his work.

And when I came up with a solution to get the price down all of a sudden he lost all of the documents for the roofing.

So I'm starting over with a new carpenter tomorrow. πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘ŒπŸΎ

Sorry for the late post! πŸ™ˆ
I'm going back to the orphanage this Saturday to give the kids 4 fotbolls and a pump of course.

I also wanted to just play and talk with them as well. After my last visit I just felt that I didn't have any time to be 100% social.🌺

I will keep you updated on every step of the way of course! Right now I'm in a discussion about the price for the roofing of their bedrooms. Hopefully we will get that project done soon!

Went to the orphanage today to deliver the hygiene starting kit and the food supplies.

And I had a carpenter with me as well, he took a good look at their ceiling to see what the cost will be for the reparations.

I'm excited for the kids because they are seriously getting something done for their benefit for ones.

I'm working my ass off to get these kids a better home, and I know that the workers there at "Caring for tomorrow's generation" are also doing their best!

But it's hard when they don't have any sponsors from any companies and the government here gives each kid 20cents a month... Barely!! That's bull shit!πŸ‘ŽπŸΏπŸ’€πŸ™€

So at least I will do my best and hope that it will grow into something better in the future.

Future investors or better charities and so on.✊🏾.

Today is the last day before I go back to Buchanan Basa to visit the lovely kids from "caring for tomorrow's generation".

I decided to take a look for the material to make bracelets. My dear friend Jaybe who has his charity group: box of memories (which I'm a member of!πŸ‘ΈπŸΎ) gave me this idea when he told me about his project/charity work he did in his home country "Philiplines".

He got the kids some material and they made their own bracelets and then he sold it on his charity events that he had in Sweden. All of the profit went straight to the kids. So I thought that would be something I could do as well.

Check out his page: http://boxofmemories.org

But the most important thing here is the hygiene. I'm getting the kids some toothpaste and toothbrushes which I know for a fact that they barley use. So it's time
To start!

I even received some food supplies and milk from the anonymous donator person! Very very grateful for that!πŸ™πŸΎ

Love, AriMinta
