The Kenya Connect LRC Foundation is Being Poured!

Last month we reported that the foundation was being dug and that the fence was almost complete.  We are thrilled that the fence is fully installed and the front gate is complete!  Students from Wooton High School's Honor Society (MD) helped provide funds for the gate for which we are deeply appreciative.

This week the foundation is being poured.  As most of you know, this will anchor the building and ensure that it will be a solid, lasting structure.  We will continue to provide more pictures once the foundation is complete and the walls begin to be erected.

In the meantime, students from Arundel High School in Anne Arundel, Maryland are holding a Quidditch Tournament in March to raise funds for the computers for the LRC with the intent of beginning a book group with students in MD and Kenya.  It is exciting to see how High Schools students are helping to make a difference in the world!

We are still seeking funds to help complete the project and provide resource materials for the ENTIRE community of Wamunyu.  Just imagine the community-- children and their parents, grandmothers and grandfathers all having the opportunity to read books and newspapers and work on a computer for the FIRST time.  We welcome donations to help this project become a full reality!
