May 23rd: Great progress is being made

Posted in Kenya on May 25, 2012

A foreseeable endpoint now exists for kazi ngumu, we are almost at our goal! With continued help from the community we are able to make quick progress. Next week we will be able to lay the pipes and recover the trenches, the fruits of our labor will be realized when the water will flow to over 400 community members. 

This afternoon we picked up 50 trees from the reforestation project and headed to Manyatta Primary school. We were paired with students from the eighth grade who helped us with the planting task. It was an amazing experience for all of us, we were able to share information about Canada, our culture and our favorite activities. The students reciprocated, telling us of their families, school life and their lovely Kenya. It was an unforgettable experience to say the least. It is a wonderful keepsake to know that the trees we planted and the memories we made will grow and flourish here, many of us are already planning return trips at some point, the end of this experience is coming far too quickly.
