Day 9: Dareda Primary School

This morning was our first beautiful, clear morning; and, like every morning, we awoke to birds singing and roosters crowing. 

Don and Marianne met with the Dareda Primary teachers, who were grateful for the three classrooms and teacher's office that Karimu built last year. 

The maternity centre is looking better each day. The flooring is almost complete, and the tiles are being laid in the bathrooms. 

The group of volunteers conducted art activities and played games with the Dareda Primary students. The students really appreciate the interaction with the volunteers, because they rarely get the chance in classes of 60 to 80 students to engage in creative activities. 

In the afternoon, Don, Marianne, Nelson, and Luciana, went to a micro-finance meeting and learned how strong the community is in supporting each other in taking out small loans to improve their income and the lives of their children. 

The volunteers are all getting along beautifully. Everyone is positive and cheerful. They have worked hard all week, and they look forward to a day off tomorrow and a visit from the Masai.
