The Whitchurch & Arnewood Kenya Expedition Update…
August 9th, 2012 by Dipesh
After a week at Camp Muhaka, the Whitchwood Crew (Whitchurch & Arnewood Schools) are sad to say goodbye to Eustace and the team. We have had a great time and the project work has been challenging yet very rewarding. We worked on building a new training centre for the young people of Muhaka consisting of a tailoring room and computer room including a safe storage area. This building is one of the few in Kenya that is being built almost entirely using cement and recycled plastic bottles.
Everyone has really pulled together to help the community here and made some real friends in the village. The local tailor knows everyone by name now after sooo many visits and the local football team will now be training harder after we beat them in the last 2 matches! A few of the team learnt to paint amazing canvases by a local artist; we emptied the village of Dairy Milk and also enjoyed a spot of Yoga..
R&R awaits the team now after working so hard. So we are off for some shopping and the beach.
Thank you Muhaka Camp for the best food in Kenya! Oh… and Ellie is a Legend!
Asante sana and kwaheri!!
