Getting Real with his characters
The Creation of Hope – working together to create a future for the orphans of Mbooni Region in Kenya.
Eric Walters and his son travelled to Kenya in 2007 to visit with the family of a close Kenyan, Canadian friend. This project then began because of a chance meeting with a young orphan boy – Mutuku – in the marketplace of Kikima, Kenya. Subsequently Eric discovered that Mutuku was one of more than 500 orphans spread across the Mbooni district in rural Kenya. Outreach to this one orphan became four, and then 40, and the project currently supports over 400 orphans and impoverished children throughout the area.
