Report for March 2014

from Austine Otieno, Kids of Maseno, Kenya

This month was full of many great activities!

logoLuisa Dreke, the new intern, came to Maseno to do an internship at our project and school. She did a great job in supporting us with office work, translating learning materials from German to English, and teaching Deaf and Deafblind children. Luisa was very cooperative. Thanks to Kids of Maseno Germany for sending such wonderful interns. It is always a great experience. She finished her internship in March after one and a half months.

Above there is an impression of the drawing done by Luisa. It is a big version of the logo of Kids of Maseno at the entrance of the children’s home in Lela.

Income generating activities

The income generating activities are doing well. Again we are planning to sell some of the products especially eggs as well as rabbits to support our projects. And we are happy to say that the big pig is about to give birth. 🙂
