Giving Tuesday-Let's Get The Dining Hall Finished!

Giving Tuesday! What a perfect day to donate towards getting the dining hall at the Live and Learn in Kenya Education Center finished. The dining hall has been under construction for months now - but sad to say - we have had to stop construction several times for lack of funds. We did manage to get the roof up last week. But we've had to stop construction again. It would be such a blessing to have it funded and constructed by the end of December! 

The children are on school break now. They come to the Live and Learn in Kenya Education Center in Nakuru 5 days a week during the 10-week break. They receive their meals in a very shabby and unhygienic make-shift dining hall (actually nothing more than a big shack with holes for windows and door - which is so far away from the kitchen that the poor mamas who cook the meals have to schlepp the heavy pots of food over nearly the entire plot. Not an easy job for these women who volunteer their time and energy as part of the Live and Learn in Kenya community.

The school year begins on January 5, 2019. It would be so utterly awesome to open the doors of the newly finished dining hall to them - where they can sit down to a warm meal in a clean and friendly atmosphere. We can get it built in time if you can get it funded :)

Happy Giving Tuesday - Asante sana - thank you so much for your kind support!

Giving Tuesday - Celebrating the Day Globally

How fantastic would it be to start the new classroom construction through Giving Tuesday donations?!!!

We have finished the constructions of 8 beautiful classrooms at the Live and Learn in Kenya Education Center in Nakuru, Kenya. We dedicated the last two elementary school classrooms on November 3, 2018 with a huge celebration. 30 guests from Europe and the US were present for the celebration along with about 800 invited guests, parents, staff and of course the children. It was a glorious celebration filled with joy, happiness, gratitude, song and dance.

We're been relaxing and recuperating for the pastt couple of weeks - but now it's time to roll up our sleeves and get back to work to get that Kindergarten construction funded. If we get the funding for it, we can begin construction almost immediately!

So - get on your GIVING TUESDAY mark - Get set at 00:00 oclock ET on November 27th (6am in Europe - 7am in Great Britain) and GOOOOO donate. If you donate on Giving Tuesday, Live an Learn in Kenya International will receive a part of that US$ 150.000 GlobalGiving matching fund.

Come on over and make (another) a difference!

Thank you for being so wonderfully generous over the year and having helped to make our work so very fruitful for hundreds of needy children!
