Chikumbuso

For those of you who didn’t know, I have been working at Chikumbuso Woman’s and Orphans project in Ng’ombe. They serve about 450 lunches a day and provide free education to anyone that wants it.

It has been a great adventure so far and there is more work than one would guess. I work with the kids from time to time so they can learn basic hands on skills that they will have forever i.e. carpentry,plumbing cement work and how to replace windows ( thanks Rachel for he soccer balls 😉 ) Yes I did paint over President G.W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush’s hand prints. OOPS. I also managed to sneak Benny dog into the painting on the wall, so look for him.It is so nice to show kids that actually want to learn and truly appreciate it. The more I am there the more they ask me to do and we have some pretty big projects coming down the line. So far the biggest project was to find water. After three attempts we finally found it at 125 meters (410 feet). Who knew it would be so hard to find water on this Continent. Its a great cause and I feel luck to help out where I can.
