• I was doing a drug screen so I had time to talk to Al and his mother, who drove him here. When we got our “pass” at last, Al and his mother could not stop thanking me for my help – and his recruiter for finding him this job! His mother was in joyful tears, telling me how much it meant to her. She has no family here; they are all in Nairobi. Her husband died in 2017 and she’s been raising their three children alone. Ali left college to get a better job and it broke her heart, but now – with this job – he has plans to return. His future means the world to her.’

DAY 1: Ta-Dah!
That’s what my almost 2 year old little guy says from his bed each morning so I know he’s ready to get up. You better believe that puts a huge smile on my face.
With that in mind – Ta-Dah! Here I am, back for more stories as we wrap up 2020 – a year many have considered to be filled with darkness. Have no fear, I am still here to spread holiday cheer! I now have TWO kids, and surely my perspective on life continues to grow and change as do I; one thing remains true – and that’s my steadfast commitment to saying thanks and telling the stories of the good work our team at Vision is doing every single day. I’m over the moon thrilled to be here again to share their stories of impact – One Person at a Time.
A few COVID related stories to get us started 😊
• From an employee, we’ll call him Duane: “I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you thanks again for everything. I do appreciate it. A lot has gone down in our tenure together and I just want to thank you for sticking by me. Nobody knows what lies ahead for any one of us but I wanted to express some positively and gratitude in these trying times. There is just not enough of that going around!”
• From our very own: “We are working remotely these days, and it’s easy to feel a little disconnected from each other and especially candidates you’ve never met. So I’m sharing this because 1) it’s wonderful! and 2) it reminds us that we are STILL touching people’s lives even if we can’t connect in person right now. I love being here! …this is why we do what we do” 😊…..
