Chatamilu School Project

Volunteer labour built the school.   Here they are erecting the walls with  bricks made by local youth.   The women of the community fed the workers.   In July, 2008,  a permanent 12 room elementary school was completed serving 400 girls and boys,  kindergarten through grade eight.                                                                                                             .

 In 2008 workmen dug an 80 foot deep well to bring fresh,  clean water to the school and to the surrounding community.   Here,  boys pump water and ferry it to the storage tank.  That water was used for cleaning.   Girls carry fresh water Kenya style to their homes after school.
