Hands Across Oceans “And my God will meet all my needs according to his riches in glory.” Sarah Millie quotes from Philippians 4:19 believing that God will bless her at His own time. It is a Bible verse that keeps her going in her daily endeavors. Sarah Millie is a lady from Ugenya, Kenya living in Dallas, Texas working as a flight attendant. Her story is full of life because of her loving heart that enables her to share and put a smile on the less fortunate in society. Sarah is the founder and director of Hands Across Oceans a foundation that impacts the community in a positive way by helping the needy children back in Kenya. Since loves to travel and so she chose a career that would enable her to travel across the world. Back in Kenya, she was working as a travel consultant and she could travel to various destinations taking pilgrimage tours. When she won a green card and moved to the USA, she applied for a job and got one as a flight attendant so that she could enjoy traveling benefits. Sarah Millie tells her story of what motivated her to start the Hands Across Oceans foundation. Sarah was born in a family of five girls, and her parents were teachers. Her father was a school principal so they lived a middle-class life. But life took a different direction when her father passed on while she was in class six. That was when poverty kicked in because it was difficult for her mother to educate them all and provide their basic needs. On the other hand, she was born in a gender inequality society. Her mother suffered critics from people because she had only girls and she was expected to remarry and give birth to a baby boy. What a cruel society! Since her mother was a principled lady and respectable, she decided not to remarry because she was okay with her girls but she had to relocate to South Nyanza to avoid the critics and start a new life. Sarah tells that life was not easier as they were growing up as she could walk a long distance to go to school. But later on, when Sarah got an opportunity to go to the US, she decided to help the needy children because she was once in their situation and understands their experience. When she visited Kenya, she saw vulnerable kids and decided to help them by changing their lives for the better. She had a passion to help them and bought them food, books, and uniforms. So when she went back to the US, she shared the information with friends and requested them to support her help the kids and that’s how she came up with Hands Across Oceans which she registered in 2011. Her foundation now has 22 kids and it has become very hard and expensive to manage by her and so she is reaching out to friends and anyone who is willing to join her and help her change the lives of the kids. She believes that if she changes if the life of a single child, she has changed the whole community because the child will one day lift someone as he was lifted.
Despite Sarah’s achievements, the biggest challenge she faces in her organization is finding someone with a genuine heart to help. So she is requesting everyone to give genuinely. When Sarah changes a life, it fills joy in her heart because she does with passion and God will one day bless and send her someone her way to help her.
