OUR KENYA WORK PROJECT



This is the inside of the community center that we were to help mud and finish the walls. The elders of the community were so happy to finally have the finances to purchase supplies and work that they all wanted a hand in the project. Both men in traditional dress and those that wear their polyester suits pitched in and worked hard on their building.

I love this picture of one of our team in western dress alongside a beautiful Maasai woman in her everyday traditional finery.


Traditionally dressd Maasai women watching their center finally being worked on.
Enlarge each picture to see the detail.
Thanks for being patient for my posts. I believe the jet lag is over and I am finally getting back into a routine. Thirty hours of air time and layovers took its toll.
