Tom's Blog From Kenya

10 April 2017

Painting and football chants for our group in Nakuru.

The hard work is well underway for our group out in Kenya, as they have met the children from The Walk Centre in Nakuru and got busy with the tasks at hand.

We'll have further updates soon, but our latest blog from Community Development Officer Tom Tayler reflects on Thursday's activities.

Day Seven: April 6th
Today's review of our trip starts with a hearty delivery of doughnuts, toast and sausages, which was to fuel us for our day.

We did take a slight detour on the way to The Walk Centre, when Ken received a call from Fred, as he had broken down in another part of town. Therefore it was Ken to the rescue to help us all get to the project together!

We progressed well with our classroom painting as we managed to finish the pillars and walls, as well as the paintstaking ceiling work. 

This was helped a lot by our new helper Wisdom Elephant, who was an impeccably dressed music teacher at The Walk Centre.

There was also plenty of fun being had in the classroom with the introduction of bubbles and a fantastic parachute, which had a terrific impact on the children, as they loved every minute of it.

We also made sure that we got oour football influence across with some footballer designing and some chanting!

Before the day was up, we constructed a fantastic COL U human picture with teh children.

It was another tiring day, both physically and emotionally, as we knew we were approaching the end of our time at The Walk Centre, with tomorrow being our last day.

Another evening of cards and reflection saw us discussing a return next year already for some of the group, as well as planning for tomorrow's donation and Boots2Africa delivery!
