This is the water source they walk 2 miles a day for. Could you begin to imagine to have to drink this?
A sweet young girl waiting for her turn to have porridge.
The outdoor kitchen and the children receiving their porridge for the day. The conditions are far from sanitary.
The homes in the community are run down and in desperate need of improvement. This is just a small idea of what you will see in Kikandwa Village.
The ladies are waiting outside of the school (no electricity that day) for a ceremony about to be held. They were about to witness for the first time, a donation sent to their community. They dressed in their best for the presentation.
You may want to make note of the comments painted on the building. The teachers and parents try their best to teach children good morals. They use whatever resources they can to get important messages through to the kids. You may also notice they are educated in the English language!
Below is a slide-show of photos taken on the day the Organization was at the community.
Some are self-explanatory, Others you will view are:
The kitchen (outdoor) for the kids porridge, Dried corn husks bundled together to make the teacher's bathroom,
Towels and linens for the children to nap on, A make-shift soccer (football) for the kids to play with,
