FINISHING TOUCHES WITH MANY HANDS TOUCHING!

It's finished!  "Sisi ni kumshukuru Mungu kwa LLK na wote wa wadhamini. We are thanking God for LLK and all of the sponsors." That was the program's parents' reaction during the parent/teacher meeting last week. The fifth classroom is completed with all chairs and desks, blackboard, cabinets and bookshelves. All possible hands helped to make it happen - and many kind donations made it possible! The happy faces of the 4th graders who will be sitting at their desks as of January 6, 2017 when the new school year begins in Kenya makes all of that hard work and fundraising worthwhile. The new teacher and principal, Robert, held the parents meeting to inform them of what will be expected of both his pupils and from their parents as part of the Live and Learn in Kenya Int'l community. He also answered the many questions that the parents had. Kenneth Branda, the project manager, assisted him in answering questions. They were very interested in the annual visit from the German delegation in October. The visitors will be officially opening the classroom with a huge festival of singing, dancing and a lot of smiling - and the parents want to take part in the preparations and the entertainment for and with the vistors! And of course everyone wants to know when the construction of the next classroom will begin. The only answer to that question is "when we have the funds".  But for now everyone is very happy with the results of this beautiful new classroom for the children. The fact that these children are now enjoying their school days in fresh air with green trees around them and not in the drab, gloomy and smoggy slums is already a blessing for everyone involved - and then to top it off with the harmonious atmosphere of a clean and happy environment with smiling teachers, more and more books for the bookshelves, warm lunches and a staff who cares about them is practically heaven on earth for so many! We can only hope that funds will begin to flow for the next classroom construction very soon.

In the meantime we are counting the days until our 10-day visit in October/November when we will once again have a treasure of information and photos to post.

We are still in need of books for the classroom libraries. So, please dust off those books of yours and send them over to Kenya - or make a kind bookfund donation! 

Asante sana! Thank you so much!
