Project 2008

After 2 weeks in Kenya and a lot of work with the project, we flew back to Germany on April 26, 2008. Beside others, we had put a false ceiling in the dining hall and paid the school fees as every year. The children got books and whatever they needed more for school, school uniforms, new brooms and firewood as well as food and soap for washing. The shopping list is always pretty long!

Even the children wanted to help and enjoyed it.

Nancy is 5 years old and attends preschool. She was a premature baby and has a deformation on her left eye. The sight of one eye is limited. During our visit we arranged that David took her to an eye specialist in Nairobi. If you click on the picture, you can see an old photo of hers.

We had a nice farewell party before we left Kenya.

Delicious!

The kids were so proud of their new uniforms that they kept them even while eating. They would have been fond of wearing them even in bed! All children in the world are the same, when they get something new.
