The Hunger Banquet

Hunger Banquet

May 6. 6:00 at the Methodist Church in Lander, please, join us for a Hunger Banquet. Few leave a hunger banquet feeling full–what is that about? Guests draw a ticket, randomly, assigning them to a high-, middle-, or low-, income tier. The luck of the draw determines the meal that you eat and where you sit–perhaps, on the floor or at a dining table with full service. Please, dress comfortably and come prepared to join in the conversation-it is an interactive event.  Hope to see you and your family there! Register today by clicking the button below. Contact Judi at if you have questions.

Sunflower KIds and Kiranyi Beads Partnership

Kiranyi Mama’s beading bracelets.  Thank you to Collin Thompson for the video!  

Kiranyi Beads, Sunflower Kids, and Hill Crest School are partnering to create a sustainable approach to providing educational and nutritional support for the kids!  Kiranyi Beads is the result of collaborative efforts among key volunteers, Isaac, and Elizabeth (founders of Hill Crest), and local Moms.  Together, they have created a beading mentorship program where local mothers of the Kiranyi community go to Hill Crest School and learn traditional Masaai beading skills.  It is through the creation and selling of this beadwork that these women are able to improve the lives of their families.

The Sunflower Kids purchase the beaded bracelets from the Kiranyi Bead project and sell them in their local communities.  100% of the proceeds are donated directly back to the Hill Crest School, to provide food and education for the kids! The direct impact is profound, for every bracelet sold 100 children will be provided a healthy breakfast for two days!! Every sale fulfills the sustainable mission of the Kiranyi Bead Project.

Collin Thompson, who volunteers at Testimony School in Aursha, has facilitated a parnteship with the Kiranyi Bead Project, also.  The women create beautiful bangles which Collin sells.  All proceeds go to provide electricity at Testimony School in Arusha, Tanzania! The women are working hard to make a difference in their community.

If you are interested in a bracelet/bangle, please, contact Judi at  We ask for a minimum $15.00 donation.
