Mimi’s Village – In this newest addition to the CitizenKid collection of inspiring stories from around the globe, Mimi Malaho and her family help bring basic health care to their community.

By making small changes like sleeping under mosquito nets and big ones like building a clinic with outside help, the Malahos and their neighbors transform their Kenyan village from one afraid of illness to a thriving community. “A great resource for introducing children to the issues surrounding global health and empowering them to get involved.” — Ophelia Dahl, Executive Director, Partners In Health

We recently got a chance to read Mimi’s Village book for a review. This wonderful book is full of hope with vision of a better future. It shows how people working together can make changes for the better and it gives young readers tools to help them improve the health of villages half a world away.

We enjoyed reading this book and recommend it along with the other CitizenKid collection books.
