We left early today to go to the same compound we were at yesterday.  Today, we were to interview a group of homeless girls.  The film crew was on hand today to capture the interviews, and it was a long day!  The stories we heard today cast a spotlight on the lack of support and social services available here.  The groups living on the street form their own organizations to care for one another.  Many of the young women interviewed had children of their own, either living with them on the street, or with relatives.  Some spoke of abuse and disease as a part of their lives.  Other’s spoke of depression and suicide.  Go to the PODCASTS page to listen to today’s story.

    Josh-

    WOW! What a fantastic opportunity, and what an important one, too. I am so excited to see that KVNO and its great staff are able to participate on shining a spotlight on a part of the world that is tragically all-too-often ignored by the west.

    Kudos, and safe journey.
