Our first morning in Kisumu started off with a very quick visit to Lake Victoria. We then headed to Kisumu Junior School. The school contained children from the Asian community of Kisumu, as well as a few local Kenyan children. Again the CWB team pulled out all the stops to coach over 200 children in the morning whilst still placing the importance of the ABC messages.
In the afternoon we were back at the same field to coach children from the secondary school on site. Again around 100 children were taught new skills and able to talk about HIV/Aids. The school had a massive field and red ash area, ideal for us, and the children. Another successful and rewarding days coaching was celebrated by the team in the school’s pool. After temperatures of 35 degrees all day a dip in the pool was much needed. A water polo game soon started with varying success for the participants. The eventual winning team of Dan, Scott, Rob and Cameron left for the hotel celebrating and happy in the knowledge that the debriefing of the losing team (Ian, Vas, Tracey and Jamie) would go long into the night!
Jambo everyone. So much to take in and to potentially comment on. Great start at the new location although the journey sounded like a mare, looking forward to hearing all your songs and learning the rules of wave tennis, brilliant coach ed work and HIV/AIDs awarenss work, safari looked a-may-zin, feeling the heart strings pulled at the orphanage, Ice Man sounds like a dude – keep going; nearly there! Well done Sal x
