In late July we traveled to the Nyakome School for the Deaf in Kenya where we reviewed progress on the water tank and shared some wonderful moments with the students and staff. Our late afternoon arrival meant that the non-boarding students had already left for nearby homes. However, school board members and an enthusiastic group of boarding students welcomed us warmly as they 'sang' and 'spoke' in sign language.
The Nyakome tank will not only serve the Deaf School, but also the Nyakome general education school that is adjacent to the Deaf School. As shown in the attached pictures, the tank walls have reached their planned height. Construction was delayed slightly because we wanted to complete our personal visit before releasing the last tranche of funding. The contractor and board members informed us of the remaining tasks:
In the near future we expect to share pictures showing the completed top slab.
Thank you for making this gift to Nyakome possible.
