I recently read a post on and I was deeply moved by the message I read there. It speaks of a people who are impoverished and suffering from the debilitating disease AIDS in the small town of Kakooge located in Eastern Africa. These people not only must struggle for their own survival and the welfare of their children every single day but they are severely weakened by the disease that they carry.

A small group of women who have traveled to Africa put together a project called "Nakate" to help these women have the ability to provide for their families. How it works is they purchase handmade jewelry from women suffering with AIDS and sell it in the United States, then they return the money to the women and help invest in their businesses.

It doesn't take piles of money or countless hours of volunteer work to help make someone else's life a little better. We must all help each other and this is a beautiful way to serve another. The photos shown above are taken from the website. Take just a minute and check it out. See what you can do to help.
