Hard core stones for the foundations
The Sergoek Youth Polytechnic is developping fast with fresh visibility on it's two campuses.
The first school campus in Chepkanga location with it's 108 students, government teachers and 10 classrooms/workshops is now a fully operational institution. It built 4 brick classroom/workshops this year and will add a Plumbing and an Automotive depatment next year while planning to aquire new land in the future.
A few milies down the road, in Koshyn location, the 5 acre piece of land is showing signs of activity. The community is eagerly waiting for the construction of the new school building to commence and have not lost one minute. The land title might have taken 2 years in coming, but things have been shaping up on the ground ever since. A new local committee is organizing the work, clearing the land and gathering donations in kind.
Hard core stones were donated by friends and is piling up in view of the future foundations; water was identified and will be sourced by the villagers by next June; electricity has been requested and will be connected in 2014 in a cost sharing project with the government. A few needed buildings will go up soon: a watchman's house, a latrine, a store/brick workshop which the community will be building this month.
This year with the new elections, the country has a new administrative profile and new players on the field. One of them literally came off the Chepkanga football pitch to become elected as Member of the County Assembly! We are proud of Moses Barteng and our local ambitous, dynamic and sporty youths! Aren't you?
Thank you so much again for your support. You've given courage and hope to the rural youths of Kenya. They cannot thank you enough and send their cheers for the New Year.
Best wishes, Claire
