Farewell for now...

Well it has been an amazing experience and journey for us all. We had an emotional farewell with our guide Hemed and our other drivers. We have made such strong connections with the people we have met here it has been hard to say goodbye. Now that we are done our first flight to Heathrow we are all looking forward to being back in Vancouver with family and friends to share many stories and even more pictures! Next stop home! :)

Arrival in Mombasa

After a long journey we have arrived in Mombasa! The internet access has been limited and we have been quite busy so it took a few days for my first post.

It was an emotional arrival as the students from Kipevu met our group at the airport singing songs and welcoming us. They are the most warm and lovely people. We were overwhelmed with their energy and kindness.

We spent our first day touring the school and it was incredibly hot! We got to see all the amazing facilities here and meet some of the students and teachers.

 Well we are leaving tomorrow and are all excited for the 2015 adventure and experience. This year we will be working on the grade 8 classroom updates and supplies. The textbooks/workbooks we will be supplying are important for upcoming exams and we are anxoius to get them to the students when we arrive. We will update the blog when we can and share our travels and stories. Stay tuned for pictures and updates as we navigate through this amazing experiene.
