School Visit - January 18,2017

I am in Moshi right now for our annual Rudisha Foundation Celebration. This year is going to be one of the most exciting as we were fortunate enough to raise the funds for the Rudisha Safari Adventure. I am so grateful, beyond words, for the generosity from those who donated funds to make my wish come true - to be able to take the children on their fist safari! Our "big day" is on the 21st of January - I am very excited and so are the children. Keep following my blog for photos of our safari!!

I wanted to share a few photos from the first school visit in 2017 for Rudisha Foundation. This morning Martha and I had a visit and tour at Ebenezer English Medium Pre-Primary, Primary and Secondary School. It is the fist year attending Ebenezer for Loveness and Gidion Njiro and we are excited for them as it is a wonderful school. A big thanks to their sponsors for the support which allows them to attend a great school. English is spoken all the time (except for Swahili class, of course). Walking around the school grounds with the Academic Master we heard a lot of children singing their lessons. The school has great energy all around! As all the students were busy learning, we didn't go into the classrooms because it causes a "BIG" distraction when a "mzungu" walks in with a camera!

The buses used for the kids who live further from school. 

"Speak English" signs are all around the school grounds - even the teachers must speak English to each other.

Certain mornings the children do their marching parade in this area, drumming and singing - note the beautiful back-drop of Mount Kilimanajro's Mawenzi and Uhuru peaks!

Each morning the students do their multiplications - in English!
