Brand new classrooms/workshops  WING 1

Dear Rafikis,

This is a happy moment to be sending you a report. We have just returned from the field and experienced how much is happening. The recent visit of Irish Ambassador Dr. Vincent O'Neill and his wife, to our Koshyn polytechnic campus made the constrction site seem like a party site!

Indeed, thanks to a very generous grant from Irish Aid, attributed to RAFIKI YA MAISHA through Misean Cara, the Irish Ambassador to Kenya - the first after a 27 year absence from the country - set the corner stone in mortar on the foundation walls of WING 2. March 1st, 2015 was a double celebration : we admired the finished building of the 4 first classrooms/workshops of WING 1 and we officially started the construction of WING 2. In actuallity, WING 3 of the main quadrangle of the school has been planned and will also be finished at the same time as building 2.

The youth, the community, RAFIKI YA MAISHA International and Kenya team, Patrician Brothers from Kenya and the world at large, Misean Cara representatives fromDublin and numerous officials (govenors to Members of the Constitutional Assembly, Women representatives in the National Assembly,former minister of Education, a High Court  judge, a woman engineer from the Ministry of Works, the director of all the Youth Polytechnics in Kenya) the Sergoek YP principal and our students were all present.

"We really enjoyed and learnt from the visit. What a great opportunity to see good development in practice and th coming together of so many committed people towards a common dream - which is on its wy to becoming a reality." 

Thank you all for coming together with us and making this celebration possible. It would not have happened without your support and your friendship. I trust you feel the joy of participating in this dream with us?

Claire
