On August 17, a very symbolic ribbon will be cut, making the Chwele Amani (Peace) Center open to serve countless thousands of the village of Chwele.
Though it has already served thousands, the added guest house (which sleeps 24 volunteers) will create a vacuum for more Professionals to come and tithe their services. (Medical, Dental, Agricultural & Nutritionists alike).
This will be my last post from the US, prior to documenting this grand event. If you want an AMAZING dinner experience, and images of the above event – join us for An African Dinner Experience.

It’s hard to believe that this project I’ve accepted as my own source of tithing time, is just about completed. I’ve heard countless stories of the volunteers that have gone before me, and I’m honored to be joining many of them next month in Kenya. As the current “web guy”, it is my honor to present to you the giving Souls that are on their way (or will be soon) to see the Chwele Community Centre doors open on August 17, 2013.
I would also like to thank, in advance, Erika Owen, who will be writing and posting updates on the progression as it occurs from Kenya. The next few posts you see will likely be some cheerful words from her, as I put my attention on the photography needs for this site and future appeal needs.

On behalf of myself and the COUNTLESS people that have brought Chwele this far, thank you Paul and Grace Kuto for giving us all an avenue to share our talents. You are both the most amazing givers I’ve ever encountered.
Asante Sana (Thank You Very Much)

Our mission is: through christian love, we are inspired to foster lasting relationships through philanthropic and cultural exchange experiences between people from the U.S.A. and rural communities in Kenya to impact human understanding and the quality of life for those involved for generations to come through self-sustainable projects especially by women, youth, and their families.
So many life transforming stories have been shared by volunteers at Chwele and those who have visited Chwele since we started working there back in 1994. Many of you in the Pacific Northwest region have heard these stories from us personally, and now with the wonders of technology, we can finally share them with so many others around the world!
This blog is for you all to share your stories as well, whether you live in Kenya, or in the U.S.A. or anywhere else in the world. This is where you can write us to share your thoughts and experiences, especially if you know they will impact our work in rural Kenya.
Thank you for visiting and please write back:).
-Grace and Paul Kuto
Update on Kenya:
Thank you for your kind words. As some of you know, Kenya peacefully completed their long anticipated elections on March 5th. Despite isolated unrest at the coastal area, Kenya impressively maintained a Peace Movement leading to and during the election period. One week before the elections, Kenya held a historical national Peace Rally at Uhuru Park where all the eight presidential candidates pledged to their nation to promote peaceful campaigns and elections. They did despite the outcome. While the passing of my sister was an unfortunate cause, I am grateful that it put me back in Kenya to experience this historic evolution into a peaceful, democratic experience.
