Hip Hop!

Friday, March 28th, 2008
Wow! What a day, over 400 young people turned up at Tumaini to help us celebrate Easter. Along with our own artists DJ Joysee, Sister V, Angel C’s and DNC we had artists from Nairobi and Uganda perform, the crowd bopped to the beat of Prince Ris, Bamba Fifty and Brayo G! The PA System was at full capacity as the crowd joined in with Fire, Fire, Fire and Choma! The atmosphere was electric, but don’t worry you can be part of the day, we have produced a CD of the artists which will be available when we visit the UK in the summer, book early to avoid disappointment!

Work will start next week on the roof for classes 1, 2 and 3. Have a great weekend. Xx Glyn & Janey.

Happy Easter

This is a great weekend to celebrate and we have a lot to be thankful for, Easter is time for reflection and thanksgiving for the incredible gift of life we have received through the death and resurrection of Jesus. We are planning an incredible music extravaganza, we have local artists as well as some from Nairobi and Uganda performing at Tumaini on Saturday and Sunday with a grand finale on Monday. It’s going to be an explosion of music, dance, drama and puppets!
More thanks this week to Rotherham New Life for a donation that will allow us to continue building and finish the roof for Forms 1,2 & 3. We plan to start construction of the roof trusses the week after next, and as always we will keep you up to date with our progress. This is how the project is looking at the moment. We hope you have a great Easter weekend, we are certainly planning to jig, rap, bop or wriggle to the sound of the beat!!! Xx Glyn & Jane

So the debate is finally over! Form 4 have moved into their new classroom. There was much excitment and a scramble for the best position in class. Each chair and desk was inspected and new rubber feet fitted before being allowed into class. As you can see there is now plenty of space, it’s light and airy, a perfect environment to make our next anouncement. We have received our Registration Papers for K.C.S.E exams that will take place in October, our Form 4 students are officially “Canditates for 2008″.

Can you help us to move on? We need to complete classes for Forms 1,2 & 3. Our first priority is to put up a roof before the rains start at the end of this month, we can then continue on whatever the weather! Thanks for helping us to get this far. Xx Glyn & Janey

So Close!

So close, but I’m sorry you will have to wait until next week to see our students sat at their desks. Our fundi’s have worked really hard this week and are determined that the classroom will be ready for Monday, so as a team have agreed to work Saturday.
There is much debate in High School, will it be Form 1 or Form 4 that get to occupy the new classroom. They have both put forward very good arguments as to why their class should have priority, obviously neither class has read the blog!
