BUILDING THE KLAUS GRUENLING DINING HALL

by Leben und Lernen in Kenia e.V. Vetted since 2015 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit Site Visit Verified

Summary

Through many donations, we were able to build a sturdy and relatively modern kitchen at the Live and Learn in Kenya Education Center in Nakuru, Kenya. We are so thankful that the food for our very needy children is now being prepared in a clean and hygienic kitchen. Now it is time for them to also eat their meals in a clean and hygienic dining hall. One of Live and Learn in Kenya International's most generous sponsor, Klaus Gruenling, passed away very recently. We are naming it in his honor.

Challenge

When we officially and ceremoniously opened the doors to the new kitchen in November 2017 everyone was ecstatic - with good reason! The kitchen is modern, clean and easy to keep clean. Everyone is happy and very appreciative for this wonderful kitchen. But now the question is: "How long must the children go on eating in the dusty make-shift woodshed with its dirt floor with only holes for windows?" Dust and wind are not a good combination when there are no doors or windows that open and close.

Solution

It's time to get back to the drawing board! There is a large door and window at the front of the kitchen which is meant to go out to the dining hall one day. And that day really should be sooner than later. We are now raising funds for the dining hall so that the children can eat in a clean and hygienic environment.As it will be built directly attached to the kitchen, the concept is that meals will be served over the counter through the large window to at least 200 children at a time.

Long-Term Impact

It will be a very large dining hall as it will also be used for other school activities and meetings. This will be a construction - like the others at our school - that will be built to last for generations of pupils. It will be amazing to be able to open the doors of the new dining hall in November 2018 during our next visit. You can help make it possible! Every donation - large or small - makes a difference - a lasting difference. We can do it with your help. HARAMBEE - Let's join hands!
