Newsletter visit to Kenya February – March 2018

After a good trip to Kenya, I visited my family as well as I visited various projects to see how it goes and made some donations.

I have visited the Barainya Primary School in South Kinangop, among other places.

I have seen this school well and talked to the managers there. It turned out that the hygiene in this school was very bad. This is partly caused by the poor conditions in which the children are taught. At first, we were planning to rebuild this school. According to the stories, however, it was better to start by replacing a toilet building, the walls of which were completely rotten, for example. The community had already started replacing the toilets for the boys, 7 toilets in total. Rigii Children Foundation donated 8 new toilets for the girls and they have already been placed. The children no longer have to fear that they fall into the hole of the toilet or that the walls fall on them when they go to the toilet.

Furthermore, we also donated several storage folders to this primary school. We had sent the storage folders to Kenya in our last container shipment. The children were very happy because they can now store their papers neatly.

We still want to rebuild this school, we hope to be able to start next year if we have collected enough money.

Another project that the Rigii Children Foundation has started is for a children’s home. For this home, we have bought various young animals such as chickens, rabbits, ducks, pigeons, goats etc. The children will ensure that these animals can grow up so that they can provide eggs and meat, among other things. If possible, we want to continue supporting this project with the delivery of young animals. We also provided the home with two new printers.

I also visited a number of children which we support at the various schools in theĀ neighborhood. I always do this as much as possible before the schools close again for the summer, so this time again. They are doing well, they do their best at school and get good grades. There is even a boy graduated, he will continue his studies to become a car mechanic.

We also have three very poor children who live with their grandmother in our support projects. They do not even have food, which is why we thought it was important to include them in our project. The children all three go to the Barainya Primary school. School fees have now been paid. All I can do is ask for your support, for the future, so that we can support even more children and schools!
