Three Calves Born

December 25th was a happy day - the first of 3 calves were born at the Live and Lear in Kenya Education Center in Nakuru to celebrate Christmas. Within the next 2 weeks the other two calves were born. Two girls and a boy :) Everyone was elated and recently the milk began to flow for the children as well as for the calves. It's a great learning experience for the children to see how the calves grow up - and see how the milk is shared with them. We now have 4 cows and 3 calves and the cowshed is full!

Now, if only we could buy that land close by to grow crops for and with the children! The parents are willing to do most of the work of planting, weeding and harvesting..

Asante sana - thank you to the wonderful donors who have helped to get us started with this project. We still have a long way to go...

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!
