Kids4Kenya - Visiting Kasigau in April 2012

In April, Peter and Georgie Teuten visited Kasigau, Kenya to review the progress underway at the 6 schools in the region.

We found that while so much work has been done, there is inevitably so much more still to do. The 8 classroom block at Kisimenyi is taking shape and the foundations for the classroom block at Makwasinyi are being laid, as well as a number of other initiatives that are in process in each of the other schools at Jora, Rukanga and Kithege.

High on the list of needs is boundary fencing for each of the schools, the current lack of which is preventing the schools from growing food crops and also compromising local security.

In addition, the teachers accommodations are in extremely poor condition, and in urgent need of replacement and renovation.

Despite all these issues identified and the urgent need of each, the kids and the communities in Kasigau are upbeat and beginning to show real tangible benefits from our efforts. School academic scores are increasing and class sizes continue to fall as new facilities come on line. Sanitation and feeding facilities are improving and the future is so much brighter thanks to the generosity of our donors and much hard work on the ground.
