Start of Finishing Work, Phase 1

Start of Tile Laying
Start of Tile Laying

Hello, Donors!

We began the finishing work on the first phase of this project in March. The first part of the work, pictured here, includes building the work surface and cabinets in the kitchen and laying the floor tiles. This work is now complete, but some small projects remain that need to be done before we can open the project for use, such as repainting the interior (the tile layers made a mess of the original paint job!), laying additional tiles on the work surface in the kitchen and on the sides of the stairs, completing the handrail for the staircase and installing the refrigerator and stoves. I'll send you photos of the interior as soon as this is all done and the project looks beautiful.

Thanks again for your support!

Dome Finishing

Dear Donors:

In anticipation of the completion of the first phase of this project, KWENCH has finished the plastering of the biodigester. Plastering ensures that the biodigester dome, where the methane accumulates, is both water and gas-tight. The work had to be done before the commencement of the long rains here in Kenya, because when it rains the biodigester dome, which is underground, can be flooded with groundwater. After a hard day of work on Sunday, the project was finished. Then the rain started!

Thanks again for your support.

Sincerely,

Constance

Donation from U.S. Embassy

Dear Donors:

The U.S. Embassy, through its ambassador's self-help fund, has awarded a grant of US$4,000 to our local partner, the Kabiro Human Development Project. This grant is enough for us to finish the first phase of the project and open the project for use by the public.

We still need to raise money to complete and furnish the upper floor and to build a filtration plant for the effluent from the biodigester.

Thanks for your continued support!

Sincerely,

Constance
