During our first weekend we made a visit to St Christine education center. The school is a Swedish project, a school for orphans outside Kisumu and a substantial part of the financing comes from "Föreningen Kisumu" (www.kisumu.se). The school offers classes 1-7 today, two meals a day and a good education. There results of recent tests show that they are one of the best schools in the area! The students were at the time busy studying for some new upcoming test and so the school was full of children even though it was Saturday! It really felt we were back at RIOT and exams closing in!
Apart from the education the school also manages a number of projects that hopefully will provide all necessary means to the school within a couple of years. Examples of projects are goat milk production, sunflower oil production and tomatoes. The ideas of the development of the school seem to be endless and the involvement and energy of the project group that manages everything is remarkable!
During Sunday the last members of FocusOn arrived in Kenya and we all met in Nairobi.
