Our Wisdom school project started thanks to a meeting with Tom, a 28 years old man who grew up in the orphanage GOD OUR FATHER in Watamu. It was our first trip to Kenya.
One day Tom told us about the WISDOM SCHOOL in the Jimba village in Watamu and so went visiting it. We saw a school made of mud and straw, unusable when it’s raining and close to fall down.
But Agnes, the founder and the teacher of the school never gave up and doesn’t matter what she always wanted to give her 40 students the possibility of an instruction. From that moment; we felt the desire to help them, and once we came back home we started to really work to raise funds thanks to markets, dinners and shows.
Thanks to this, now the Wisdom School has two real rooms with actual walls and we count on finishing the third one by the end of the year. Unfortunately; the things left to be done are still quite a lot; we are still missing more rooms, bathrooms, the fences and we need to fix the courtyard.
It is not easy, but slowly, brick by brick and thanks to the help of many people, we are sure that one day we will make it, and we will terminate this project.
