Subject: Lacrosse Unites Update
Dear Mr. Hayes & Mr. Gold,
I hope all is well!
I just wanted to provide you with a brief update about Lacrosse Unites.
The kids continue to train every week and the enthusiasm for the game continues to grow. I am hoping to go back in August. I have attached a video, Jon Rathauser’s reflection about his time in Makuru and AmericaShare’s Programme info.

AmericaShare is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of vulnerable and impoverished children and women in the Mukuru slum of Nairobi, Kenya. Through our education, community outreach and economic empowerment programmes, we seek to provide disadvantaged children and women with access to basic services in order to facilitate sustainable change.
AmericaShare helps orphaned and vulnerable children get a quality education, assists women in creating businesses to support their families, and helps to provide care for those affected by HIV/AIDS. Through the generosity of our donors, lives in the slums of Nairobi are completely transforming.
