Jitegemee 2011 Summer Newsletter Vol. 8 Issue 1

It was around this time last year that many of you joined the Jitegemee family.  During the time since you joined us on our journey to make the new school a reality, we've passed a lot of milestones.  The most recent of these was the signing of our lease by the Kenyan commissioner of lands, paving the way for us to begin building on the new site.  This is a huge hurdle to get over, and one that many people worked hard to help us clear.  This news comes at a great time, as members of our board prepare to head to Machakos during the first week of August to meet with the building architect and the School Design Planning Committee.  We look forward to reporting back on the trip when we return in mid-August.

In the meantime, please enjoy the most recent issue of our newsletter, which contains stories from our first intern, Calum Bowden, and one of our students, Meshack Wambua Nzioka.  Once again, thank your for your support and being apart of our family!
