On October 26, a large group of LLK sponsors made their way to Nakuru for 10 days (picture: arrival at Nairobi airport).
In their large luggage, they bring many supplies and gifts for the children and their families.
Next to the visit of their sponsored children and their relatives, they plan to expand the playground, to undertake various activities with the children and much more.
A detailed report on the trip is yet to follow.

Elation at our school! As of March our kindergarten has got a new classroom and a new class – the Day Care Class. Our newest and youngest children, aged three to four years old, are lovingly cared for by our teacher, Pauline.
The 16 girls and 14 boys have days filled with fun and learning. They are playfully introduced to the languages Suahili and English, letters and numbers. Singing and outdoor activities are on the program, as well as time for play and naps.
The children have already received their school uniforms and their traditional attire, which are worn every Friday for Kenya Culture Day. And of course, just like all of the other LLK School children, everyone gets a nutritious porridge for breakfast during the morning break and a hot lunch at noon.
We are so impressed with the wonderful wall mural on our 7th classroom wall, which is a replica of a painting by the German artist, Nicholas Bodde. Bodde created dedicated this painting to a mentor and respected woman, Anne, who passed away last year. It is a long-lasting memory of an impressive woman.
Good Friday and Easter Monday are official holidays in Kenya. Faithful Christians worship at church services on Friday evening and on Easter Monday or watch one of the numerous services on television. Easter bunnies or Easter egg hunts are not traditional in Kenya. Many Kenyans use the Easter holidays to visit their families, who are often scattered all over the country.
We wish all of our members, sponsors, donors and friends a happy Easter!
