Nyang’idi Village Update

Pencil Happy

In a recent letter from our Kenyan Coordinator Jona Otieno his first paragraph pretty much sums it up;

“On behalf of Nyang’idi Village at large, our Rafiki Pen pal Society and Segere High School, I express my deepest gratitude, for the hearts, hands and minds in Australia that have made it possible for us to be benefactors to such a wide range of opportunities.”

These opportunities include;

  • 100 packs of REUSABLE Sanitary pads for girls at Segere High School, enabling them to continue their education.
  • 60 more mosquito nets to keep people safe from malaria.
  • Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) Training for 4 villagers so that they can teach the community to increase food security and sustainability.
  • A laptop, story books, textbooks, pencils, pens and more for the community learning library.
  • Materials and financial support for the sewing group to develop a sustainable business and train disadvantaged women in sewing skills that will empower them and their families.
  • Village visits from 2 families from Australia creating bridging cultures and creating friendships for life.


From the depths of my heart I thank everyone who has supported these positive change in Kenya.
