Christina's visit to Eiti, Kenya

Updated: Feb 25, 2020

Christina Olton (3rd & 4th grade teacher) joined Sonya Maechler-Dent and her older son Lucas for a follow-up trip to Kenya. More teacher training took place, many meetings with the school board and villagers, and some teaching in the classes too. Christina took over some English lessons and Lucas some biology lessons. It was a fully packed 4 days! The progress on spot was wonderful to experience. Since our visit in April 2019, the teachers had clearly implemented several of the teaching techniques we had shared with them as well as the use of all the teaching materials. The classrooms were lively, colourful, children's work was hanging and the games and toys were clearly being used. We certainly have a lot to learn from their team's dedication and motivation too! The most beautiful moment was when we blew some soap bubbles during recess, the children were so excited and it was just magical to share their enthusiasm and their joy!

We also brought two second-hand laptops with us to give to the project leaders and together with them worked on the administration needs of the project and the communication. One fantastic improvement to life in the village and at the school is the new water tank and pipe which now reaches the school with a 5 minutes walk (instead of the previous 2 kilometer walk!).
