It's fantastic to be back in Maronka

Just sending you all a quick update......the girls are all in fine form, we have 59 girls in the house now and it's just a teeny weeny bit of a squeeze but very cosy. Marian who has taken over from Isata is settling in well and enjoying her new role. You can just spot her in the top left-hand corner of this photo.

It was lovely catching up with everyone this weekend and hearing everyone's news. The newest girl in the village was born this Wednesday here she is with the Chief Obai.

We have been sorting out and delivering all your fantastic donations of clothes and materials and I managed a bit of downtime too spent watching the boys flying their handmade kites (made from rubbish they recycled)

Miriam and the teachers learning to play the guitar so they can teach the children. We had some musical instruments donated, guitars, recorders, tambourines so its going to be a musical time ahead for us all in Maronka.

Thank you to everyone for all your donations, you really are making a big difference to the children's lives here.
