Help Kiki realise her dream

Help Kiki realise her dream

Personal message

Keira-Leigh  is a beautiful 12-year-old little girl who has Atypical Complex Petimal Epilepsy. On any given day she can have between 50 to over 300 seizures a day. It makes learning and everyday life very difficult for her. From little she has loved the kitchen. She has gotten very into baking and the change we see her is amazing.  Now we need to be able to get her all the right kitchen equipment

She will never be able to have a "normal" job one day as such. So with this new interest, we would love to be able to get her more stock, some poly-carbonate moulds and much other needed items as well as a proper stove as the small gas one we have now she can only make non-bake treats etc in.  

With this, we hope that one day she will be able to support her self and even one day open a little shop and employ others who just need a bit of help in life.

Keira-Leigh is homeschooled as there are no special needs schools here. With the baking she is now learning a real skill that will help her support herself when she is older. Mom cannot work as she needs to be home with her so that is one salary less in the household. Since the Knysna Fires 2017 Dad who works for himself lost many customers after the fires so we have no spare funds to make this dream come true for her.

It was always a worry that we had on how Kiki was going to be able to support herself when she is older as we are realising that she will never have the ability to be educated formally. Since we started baking at home, it has opened a whole new world for Kiki. She has found what she loves doing:
She loves mixing and painting the moulds, seeing how ingredients work together, why certain things need to be added, etc and then waiting in anticipation for it to be ready to see how it turned out.

Without even knowing it she is learning the most awesome skill ever. Sadly we just don't have the funds to encourage this and get the proper tools she needs.

Please share the post and help us help her.
