House building trip 2015 & 2016 review

In October 2016 our 25 volunteers achieved something very special.  In the space of just 9 days they managed to build 5 houses for families in Iten.  Their amazing efforts have taken 25 children from sleeping on the floor of mud houses to lovely new beds in shiny new timber homes.

Seeing the excitement of the children as they prepared to move into their new homes was incredible.  They appreciate the small things in life.  It was inspiring to see what a weight it was off their mum's shoulders to have a safe place for her and her children to sleep.

The 2015 October trip

2 new homes for 20 children

We are incredibly proud of our 51 volunteers who in October 2015 helped us build a new 16 bed dormitory for the children at the Pavilion Village children's home and a 3 bedroom house for Judy Gathigia and her family in Iruri. This wouldn't have been possible without their efforts and in particular the support from Stewart Milne Group who flew 19 of their expert staff out to help our efforts.  They tell us what they thought of the trip in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfcZ5lX1IXc&feature=youtu.be

The whole experience was inspirational and what made it even more humbling was that the people we were building for were with us on site every day.
