Parents day

Yesterday we had the annual parents meeting, where the parents and guardians come to the primary school.
Things never turn out the way you expect. We had around 30 parent and 70 kids. The audience wished to speak Swahili only. So we three internationals decided to instead make a small session on HIV and AIDS with the kids. We had three kenyan facilitators, who led the group discussion and informed the adults. Condom presentation included.

We also provided lunch for our 100 visitors, asante sana to Adah and Evalyne for 110 chapatis, Ndengu and Cabbage!


Finally weekend… Sunday afternoon
I really enjoyed the rest of the day, just walking through South B, enjoying the sun and talking with Steve from my Form-2 and his friends. These guys are real art talents! In the evening I met some AIESECers for a long needed Mango juice. By the way: It is not allowed to sit on the gras in the university compound after 8pm…

Plans
For my last four weeks of working here I plan to

  • continue with the discussion classes in the secondary school in Form 1 and 2. Maybe expand to mondays for the Form-3s, we will see.
  • Finally start the fundraising for the Beauty Contest
  • update the website of the primary school
  • present both schools in Mukuru to the LC to maybe get AIESECers involved to teach or mentor there.
  • organize one more parents meeting on Saturday or Sunday. The topic is not defined yet. It could be another health issue or application to jobs.
  • Continue to have empowering conversations with students, friends and members of the association. Personal goals, help with computers etc.
  • Find a successor and continue with documentation of the projects.
