7th Classroom Construction - Day 1
...and it goes on and on..watching the schoolhouse grow
We began the construciton of the 7th classroom last weekend and it is already taking shape. It is always amazing to see the process and the progress of another classroom being constructed at the Live and Learn in Kenya Education Center in Nakuru, Kenya. What could be done in a fraction of the time and energy with heavy-duty equipment, is all done - practically by hand. Under the critical eyes of our project manager, Ken, and the constructor, the hard-working men dig and dig and schlepp and schlepp away the excess dirt with their shovels and wheelbarrows until the shape of the new classroom and office are formed.
This construction phase consists of a classroom and an office as it must be built around the corner with one roof. The next construction phase will be the same from the other side with the teachers' room and principal's office - joining the two offices together so that a lovely court for morning assemblies will be found in the middle.
We have come a long way - but we still have a long way to go - but with your help we can go further much faster so that these children will one day have classrooms with an atmosphere that makes learning fun and interesting and teaching less of a job than an enjoyable way to make a difference in children's lives.
We are hoping to have the classroom and office finished by the end of February. With your support, perhaps even sooner so that the preschool children can move out of the make-shift sheetmetal roofed, wooden shack classroom into a real, comfortable and friendly classroom. Hand in Hand we'll make it happen!
Happy Holidays and a healthy, happy and successful 2018 from all of us at Live and Learn in Kenya International.
