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

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

Partial Construction of Upper Floor is Complete!

Project as of September 2011
Project as of September 2011

With money from GlobalGiving, we have completed the construction of about a quarter of the upper floor of our Kawangware project. With paint left over from the Safaricom Foundation painting project, we painted the columns Safaricom green! This construction, complete with a heavy door and a strong lock, will prevent anyone from breaking into the project and stealing the stoves. Now we need to raise the money to buy the floor tiles, stoves, kitchen sink and refrigerator and to hire a carpenter to build a work table and cabinets for the kitchen. Thanks again for your support!
