The Enthusiasm of the Community

Fresh field news:

The community in Koshyn, our second school campus, is putting a lot of energy into preparing the site: a pit latrine has been dug, a store and a watchman's house is being build. The local leaders, villagers and youths greeted the Quantity Surveyor and myself with prayers, songs and speeches.

The youths in Chepkanga, our first school campus, gave the community a HUGE reason to be proud of them. The news here is noteworthy: St Joseph's church in Chepkanga received new lighting, a fully wood panelled office and a brand new gates, all installed by the young trainees of the Youth Polytechnic.


Rafiki Ya Maisha enjoys massive local, political and administrative support as well.


The fruits of these community efforts encouraged by your donor support is allowing everyone to be proud of their youth today. Thank you for believing that high school drop outs are full of potential.

The gratitude and elation with the project is on all their faces. Look at our pictures: what do you think?
