Library to host presentation about orphanage in Kenya

BAR HARBOR — Mount Desert Island residents Judith Bradshaw Brown and Sarah Emigh-Doyle will share their experience of working in Kenya at the Kakamega Orphans Care Centre, which provides AIDS orphans with food, a safe home, and an education, at a presentation at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 25, at the Jesup Library.

Friends of Kakamega, a Maine-based Quaker nonprofit organization, partners with Kenyans to support the Care Centre and organizes a service project trip to the orphanage each summer to work with the children and introduce participants to life in Kenya.

Emigh-Doyle and her twin sister, Hannah, have written and illustrated a children’s book about the Care Centre, which will be available for purchase and signing at the presentation.

The program is free and open to the public. For information, call the Jesup Library at 288-4245 or email Judith Bradshaw Brown at
