Monday in Nairobi 

Thankfully, a slow morning with lots of Moris’ good coffee. We swapped stories and talked about ‘our’ camp kids. 

We packed and weighed and sorted everything ready to farewell Jake & Lindi, who set off with driver David with just enough time for a quick stop off at Kazuri (Lindi’s fave!) on their way to the airport. 

Off to Kibera with Sally – we had undies to deliver!! AMS families and friends in Sydney were very generous is donating to this project – the final tally was 1002 pairs! These will be kept at the Angel Kindergarten and given out as needed. And they are always needed!
As we whizzed along the bypass in Sally’s land cruiser it was bizarre to see the Kibera slum with the new and ever growing sky scrapers in the distance. 
The Angel Kindergarten was, as always, a sight to behold on the edge of Kibera. I know I take similar photos every time but I’m always astonished by the contrast inside and outside the gate. 

The Kindergarten is closed until Wednesday. During the holidays Sally has organized for the hallway and classrooms to be tiled and it makes a huge difference! ‘Our’ roof is doing well and the tiling under it looks great and will be so much easier to keep clean. 

Bill and Sally discussed future improvements, ways to combat drainage & mud and other essentials. 

There are always kiddies hanging around the kindy and we took the opportunity to show them the donated undies. They were so excited, modeling their chosen pair on their heads. 
One of our little sweethearts, Clarice, was there. What a cutie – posing for photos as always. 
We drove around the local area looking at potential sites for additional Kindergartens. ‘Angel’ currently brings over 200 children ages 2-7 out of the slum each week. They are given a beautiful environment, a uniform, education, breakfast & lunch 5 days a week (and an AMS class!) 

Sally & Stuart’s dream is to establish more kindergartens around the Kibera fringe, bringing more children out of the slum. 

We are constantly involved in conversations calculating the cost of another 200 kids at a second site, another 200 kids at a 3rd site, another 200 kids at a 4th site. 
Lets ‘Evacuate Kibera’!!
