Introducing Rafiki Board members & updates

Elizabeth, Patron, Treasurer and driving force
Elizabeth, Patron, Treasurer and driving force

Jambo everyone,

We are happy to wish you all a happier and safer New Year.

Field news from both schools is brief at this time. January is the start of the academic year in Kenya and our schools are busy taking enrollment of new students for the year. Meanwhile, during the month of February, the schools are occupied by exam takers and no teaching or any other activities can take place.

The construction of the new brick & mortar 4-classroom building at our Sergoek campus, on pause since Christmas, will pick up after the exam session. The Ministry of Works recently delivered the Certificate of Conformity allowing the roofing to begin shortly.

We wish to honor our Very first Rafiki Ya Maisha Board members and introduce them to you. Without our friendship and ongoing collaboration, Rafiki Ya Maisha would never have been able to reach the youth and succeed in our vocational training mission in this area of rural Kenya. Here is the core group that was formed in 2007:

Let us continue to uplift them!
