"Attendance for girls have improved so much. We have also observed a great change in their hygiene, attitude, and acceptance among themselves. Our boys have also learned to respect and appreciate them as their sisters. Thanks again and God bless you and the project too."

"I have to admit I was a little worried when we invited Bella Bunkers to come and speak about Project Imagine. I was anxious because we were about to spend two worship services talking about the number one reason for school dropout in rural Kenya – a girl’s menstrual cycle – and how $7 can keep a girl in school for an entire year by providing sanitary napkins (without them, the average time out of school is nearly 2 months a year).
But what Bella shared was so much more. It was a reminder of John Wesley’s work establishing schools and clinics for the poor in England, and a reminder of our own Methodist Women, who in 1926, helped raise $50,000 for the Brookings Methodist Deaconess Hospital (established in 1912 as the Dakotas Deaconess Hospital with 20 beds). Bella reminded us to ask the question, “What do we take for granted?” as we seek ways to make a difference in people’s lives. She reminded us of what can be done with great Passion and Purpose.
At the end of the day, I felt proud and inspired. Many thanks to Bella and the Daly’s for sharing this special ministry!"
