In the last two weeks, despite the public holidays, the construction continued, so that the roof of the kindergarten was completed and the installation of the windows and plastering of the interior walls began.
The floor of the administration building with library and doctor’s rooms could be concreted.
The new school year began last Monday in Kenya and so after our holidays there was a lot of hustle and bustle again. We now teach 210 pupils in seven primary school classes. In addition, 60 children attend preschool. As soon as the building for the kindergarten has been completed, the new children will join the day care.
Every Monday morning, all schools in Kenya traditionally begin the day with a gathering and ceremony to raise the Kenyan flag.

Thanks to generous donations, the kindergarten construction that began in November 2019 is progressing very quickly. The construction company began roofing during the week before Christmas and it is planned to be completed by New Year’s Eve. The windows and doors will then be installed so that the interior work can begin. Three classrooms for the day care, kindergarten and preschool classes, a teacher’s room as well as latrines will be finished and ready to be used by the end of February 2020.
The construction of the foundation of the next building began in December 2019. The administration offices and a large room for the library are located near the entrance opposite our dining/multi-purpose hall. Two rooms close to the library will serve as a small clinic for medical and dental treatments and biannual checkups for the children.
There were many happy faces on the Saturday before Christmas at our school in Nakuru. All families of the children from our project came on this special day. In order to prepare a nutritious Christmas dinner for the holidays, they received a food package with rice, flour, vegetables and a live chicken. All children received a special LLK T-shirt as a gift.

A label with the LLK-quote – this is what the visitors found on the water bottles in the hotel.
We think, that this is a great idea and promotion for our project in Nakuru.
