Saturday Manuela and Alex visited the school with some watercolors and especially the smaller kids enjoyed the face paintings. And the kids got to watch Emoji the animation movie with English subtitles.
Special treat for the kids, faculty and staff. Manuela and Alex sponsored fish for all on Sunday for Lunch. Together we enjoyed crispy fish and/or a delicious fish with a coconut sauce. accompanied by rice or Ugali, which is made of cornflower and water.
While after the first lockdown some kids came back to school in October 2020 we are so excited to have them all back, some had a ten month break and them as well are glad to meet with their friends back at school and eager to learn. We welcome them at their home away from home - Jambo!
Kids are slowly leaving to go home for the holidays. We will miss them and are looking forward to have them back healthy in January 2021. Happy Holidays to all at Aid Kenya Watoto and Kidimu School for the Deaf.
We are so excited to have the children come back to school. It was not so easy to stay in contact while they were at home as not all families have the technical ability to connect via a smart phone or computer. Regardless, we are excited to have them back and start using the new classrooms that we finished in June. Pretty sure they will be thrilled to be back as.
While the children are still at home due to the pandemic, the construction of the two new classroom buildings was completed. This boosts the number of classrooms from two to six rooms. This will be such an improvement for the learning experience for all classes grades 1 through 8 once the children will return for their education. Many Thanks to all our supporters and generous donors to make this happen!
The President of Kenya Uhuru Kenyatta directs that all schools shall be closed as of Friday March 20th, 2020. Our staff worked very hard in the days between to ensure safe travel home for all our boarding students.
