|Many helping hands!|
On route we were reminded by a group of giraffes that we were indeed in Kenya.
Prior to the distribution of the bedkits at the elementary school within the Centre and were welcomed by a song specifically scripted to say their appreciation of the bedkit.
The children were thrilled with the content of the bedkit which included the brightly coloured outfits they wore for picture taking.
|Time for some fun!|

The need here was great as was illustrated by their well worn shoes and the uniforms. The mandatory school uniforms are produced on site.
Their interests were common to all children skipping , football etc and of course even selfies.

After a generously supplied lunch by a Rotarian we toured the centre which was focused to meet all needs including health, education, care, and skill building not to mention self improvement and sustainability. There was a day care centre, workshops, a library, special needs children’s centre, gardens, chickens to look after and catfish ponds.

Sustainability was a focus. Usable wastes within the centre were used to made charcoal for the Centre’s kitchen. Plastics were used to make baskets. Compositing was practiced.
The illustrated caring and partnership of many offers hope for these endearing children.
