Lillian is a young mother of 4 children living in the slum called Bangladesh, on the outskirts of Mombasa. She arrived at St Patrick’s Dispensary bringing her 10 month old child who was sick. Winnie, our Clinician, attended to the child, then turned to Lillian and asked her if she had received treatment for her eye. Lillian’s right eye was grossly swollen and very disfigured. She was embarrassed and ashamed of her appearance. Winnie was very gentle with Lillian and told her we could help her, but Lillian was not ready yet- she was too afraid. She had sought native treatments earlier, and had lost her sight in that eye. So she left without answering Winnie’s question, and disappeared for several months.

Growing up in the United States, I always loved the comfort and taste of a chocolate chip cookie just out of the oven. So when I was asked by my fellow educators at the youth center/school I work in São Paulo, Brazil if I could teach the teens and teachers how to make cookies I responded with an excited YES. We spent two full days teaching 8 different classes of teens ranging from ages 12 to 18 how to make cookies. So begs the question can chocolate chip cookies change the world?
