The SEAM project has begun construction on the library. In a few more weeks construction will be complete and we can start moving in books that the children
will have access to. Once construction on the library is complete, we plan on painting the initials of all the people who helped by donating on each of the bricks on the back wall, and have the children paint the rest of the walls. Then, if our budget allows,
add some solar power as a way of teaching the children about free green energy.
In the time being the children have continued with their programs which include reading, puzzles, tree planting and research on what each plant they grow is and does, storytelling and more.
Mentors have also started coming to the project site to hang out with the children and teach them new things.

The Next Steps For SEAM
By Simon Karanja - Project Leader
Weekend fun with books
Team members of the SEAM project are more than grateful for the help we have received in getting this far.
The project Leader had travelled to another city to complete some previous work but has now returned. All the funds raised during the accelerator phase have been received and are being planned for accordingly. We have currently identified a contractor who is both efficient and affordable to begin construction of the library.
We have also completed designs and identified all the materials that will be used in the construction of the first phase of the library. We have decided to start by putting up a structure worth $3,694 which our contractor has assured us will be possible. The remaining $1500 will be invested by our banker to help create an income stream for the library. This is something that has been discussed with several of the major donors, who have agreed to this plan.
Contributors have continued sending in study material for the children which is being collected and stored. Construction is hoped to begin mid-December, and will continue after the holidays.
In the mean time we are continuing with our outdoor reading and enviromental projects.
