It is the end of my first week in Kenya. This year I got a sim card for my ipad so can keep in touch right from the village. I have been teaching a class of 60 grade 7 students with Jackie, my last year’s teaching partner who is filling in on her break from university. Those of you who are supporting her will be happy to know she is doing very well.
The first photo shows that the new school is well in its way to completion. But for now students are in the older building, under tents and outside under the trees. Here are the grade sevens getting ready to answer their letters from Park Dale.
In the afternoons I am working with a group of young women and we are hooking with t-shirts. They are very interested and making great progress.
They have drawn their own patterns and are making small trivets. We have no frames or cutters, but their progress is amazing.
Beautiful…beautiful faces, beautiful work, beautiful world.
Yay! So great to have some news from you and hear a little about your adventures. The photos are great, and I look forward to more…. <3
Wonderful work you are doing and the students seem happy and very focused. Can’t wait to see how their hooking comes along.
