These are the experiences of our volunteers in Kenya.


Naru Moru, Kenya: It’s Committee member’s day – aka Friday!

Posted in Kenya on December 29, 2011

It’s only day 5, but the work seems like it’s getting harder, the sun is getting hotter, and the walk to the project site is further everyday. No work gloves = blisters :( those of us who have never experienced a sunburn before, realized it happens in Kenya! Besides the mud, and a few accidental cracks in existing pipes, we had another successful day of digging on the site. We are getting closer and closer to our goal (almost half way) and it’s pretty exciting since we have another week to go still. Our supervisor Francis sat us down for some history about Kenya and gave each of us an African name that we will now go by. Mine is Mumbi – aka mother. 

We are looking forward to a couple of days off before we start again next week – we are told that close to 100 volunteers will be working with us. We are off to a Safari for our holiday weekend!

Cheers,
