What is the situation with the Covid-19 in Nakuru, Kenya – at the Live and Learn in Kenya Education Center? The question was asked and our project manager, Kenneth Branda answers in this short video.
Great news came to us this week from our project manager Ken in Nakuru. The construction work on the new administration building has been completed and the rooms have been set up. Offices for our employees, treatment rooms for the doctor and dentist and a large, bright library were set up. We are very thankful to “The Myhrvold & Havranek Family Charitable Fund” for the generous donation with which the entire building was financed.
In addition to the building, a large underground water reservoir for collecting rainwater and an above-ground water tank were also built.

Hunter is now supporting the “Living and Learning in Kenya” project with masks
At Hunter, mouth and nose masks are manufactured in the in-house factory (petonline reported), currently up to 15,000 pieces per week.Now the company is also supporting the aid project “Life & Learning in Kenya” and the school or the almost 500 students and their teachers with the textile masks.
Hunter has supported the sponsored children Emmanuel and Precious for many years. In addition to these sponsorships, the company also financially participates in the construction and expansion of the school and classrooms as well as in the new building of the dining hall, which is also used as a multi-purpose hall.
Dear sponsors, friends and supporters of “Living and Learning in Kenya Int’l.”
We hope that you are in good health and that you are making the best of the current situation wherever you are.
These are not good times for all of us. But it is far worse for our children and their families in Kenya.
The schools have been closed for some time. The children and their families have to stay in their narrow huts in the slums.
The parents, mostly day laborers, are no longer able to earn any money. No money = no food.
YOUR HELP IS URGENTLY NEEDED !!!
Through our project manager Ken and his team on the ground, we have the possibility to help the families in their difficult situation by providing our financial aid.
BUT: Only through additional (!) donations will it be possible to help all of our families equally
so that they can buy food and soap.

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.
