From the very beginnings of Mahiga Hope High School three years ago, I'd envisioned that when the students of Mahiga, Kenya had completed their early morning walks to school, they'd pass through a set of gates that symbolized a door to opportunity and hope.
Gates weren't a priority of course. We had to focus first on classrooms, a library and computer lab, science labs, kitchen and all the other parts of this wonderful infrastructure. We somehow managed to find funding for that infrastructure and much more than we'd first envisioned. But we never were able to build those gates.
Shortly after the students moved into the new science labs, I received a photo from Joseph Mutongu and Mahiga. While I was dreaming of gates, the school was building them, which makes this a great opportunity to thank everyone at Mahiga for being such dedicated partners in this endeavor.
THE GATES TO HOPE ARE COMPLETE, BUT WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP.
I'm on my way to Kenya to work on all the Nobelity Project's schools (ten in all) and we have some important work left to do at Mahiga. This includes security fencing for the entire property, and the fencing and raised beds for the organic gardens and orchard.
Your donations will plant trees that produce fruit for the school and vegetables that will be served in our beautiful kitchen and dining hall.
Thanks for the support. We're almost there!
