On Sunday, July 29th, the Edling Association of wajibu wetu – hand-in-hand for Kenya, in conjunction with the landlord and landlady Detlev and Gusti Viergutz, invited all interested guests to the Schächinger Mühle Tavern for our Bavaro-Kenyan Summer Feast.[singlepic id=189 w=160 h=120 float=]
Detlev and Gusti Viergutz allow us to use their tavern, the „Schächinger Mühle“ for a Bavaro-Kenyan Summer Feast! We enjoy music and culinary specialities from both countries. A wide variety of children’s activities ensures that adults and youngsters alike are well entertained. The profit goes to Wajibuwetu – our kids in Kenya.
In July, an 80th birthday party, combined with a golden wedding, in Hattenhofen near Stuttgart, brought gleaming eyes to the faces of many children! MANY THANKS to the generous donors and guests!
Rockwinkel Highschool in Bremen collects donations in the context of their “Project Days”. A super effort! Click here to download the report.
Recently, in the course of a trip to Kenya, some members of the project were able to visit and inspect the new property.
The annual sponsored run in support of Wajibuwetu has already become a regular feature in the school life of Franz-Marc-Highschool in Markt Schwaben. This year, once more, numerous pupils and a considerable part of the staff have participated very enthusiastically. Many thanks for your indefatigable zeal, and, of course, also to the untiring sponsors: parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts, shops and businesses!
Now it’s official! Our trials and tribulations will soon be over! The big wajibu wetu family has just become a property owner! Now we urgently need sponsors to help us finance the construction work of our new home.
The last one and a half months just flew by. The excursion to the “Karura Forest” (very close to Nairobi) with the whole community was certainly a very special day for everybody. It was a great change for all. It was arranged with the help of several Dutch UN-employees and their families. One of the families lives on the very edge of the forest, so we first had biscuits and juice before proceeding into the forest. This was a great opportunity for everyone to run around and let off steam. Afterwards, in honour of the occasion, we had pizza (luckily, only two weeks before, I had made pizza with the kids, so they weren’t too much taken aback) and ice-cream for dessert. Already at that point the day would have been a complete success, but, on top of all that, everyone received a farewell present. Just like in the shoe-box action at Christmas time, the presents were allocated by age and gender. It was really an extremely eventful day, full of exciting memories, just like children really need it from time to time!
