Not Even the Lockdown Will Stop Them!

Tending the Field
Tending the Field

Life is hard - and it has gotten much harder over the past 13 months - especially now that Kenya is back in a full and strict lockdown since March 2021

But life goes on and the children have to be fed! The parents of our Live and Learn in Kenya International children take turns working on the field growing crops of beans, maize, and green vegetables for the children's school lunches. They toil away preparing our rented acre of the field for planting - plant the crops - weed the field - harvest - set the maize and beans out to dry and then make flour out of the maize. The mamas are responsible for all kitchen work at the Live and Learn in Kenya Education Center's kitchen. That doesn't only include cooking - but also preparing the fires for the huge stoves - slaughtering animals - pluckining the chickens - serving the meals - and then cleaning everything up.

It's this work that lets the parents know - and feel - that they are a part of the Live and Learn in Kenya International community. It also shows their children - who are looking on and taking this all in - that they can be proud of their mamas and papas and how much they love and care for them. It shows them what needs to be done in a community - in a family.

We are very proud of our Live and Learn in Kenya parents. Kudos to them all!

Asante Sana - thank you for YOUR wonderful and generous support!
