Empty Pot!

Friday, October 24th, 2008
Hi we have had a good week with the KCSE exams going really well, so far students have completed papers in English, Swahili, Geography, Physics and Christian Religious Education. They still have a long way to go as exams continue until the 10th November.
Thanks to all those who are helping with our feeding programme, especially those who have made extra commitments. From next month we will be increasing the amount of food that we cook, I have to admit that as I went outside to see the food distributed today that I cried as the food ran out! There were still at least 50 children waiting patiently who left hungry, I wanted to run inside and take food from anywhere and give them something!
Hopefully this won’t happen next month! We know that we still need to increase the portion sizes, if you can help please contact us. Xx Glyn & Jane

Wow! What a week, but we made it. The Fundi’s (Builders) have really worked hard and as you can see below the class needed for exams is finished. Today the invigilators came and set the desks out, ready for an early start on Tuesday, as Monday is a public holiday. We also managed to get the hallway plastered and a window fitted, the front office ceiling finished and undercoat applied to the walls so that the invigilators can use the room. Our third classroom is painted and ready for tiling after the exams finish on the 10th November.
Our Form 4 students are ready if a little nervous, please pray for them, they have a tough 3 weeks ahead. Xx Glyn & Jane

Deadline Approaching!

Friday, October 10th, 2008
It’s been a busy week and our deadline is fast approaching, exam time tables were handed out yesterday, students wandered around with a worried look on their faces, will our classes be ready? Yes we said confidently. The whole team has worked incredibly hard this week, including today, which is a public holiday. The floor of the first classroom is almost complete, we hope to have a ribbon cutting ceremony by Tuesday! The second classroom has a new ceiling and the first notice board finished. By the end of next week Form 4 students will have the classes they need for their exams. Thanks guys. Xx Glyn & Jane

Getting There!

Friday, October 3rd, 2008
Well we’ve come to the end of a busy week, thanks guys for all the hard work! This week has been unbearably humid, so we’re all a bit whacked! Progress has been good, the first classroom will be ready for tiling on Monday and the ceiling is almost complete for the second classroom. We have put windows in the third classroom, but plan to leave that as it is until the other two are fully complete.

Thanks to all those who have given to our water project, if you don’t know what I’m talking about drop me an email for more information. Thanks Xx Glyn & Jane
