We have arrived into Mombasa, Kenya after a short 9 hour flight and have settled in wonderfully! We have been spending most of our time so far in a shanty town called 'Mtwapa' which is just north of Mombasa on the coastline.
The schools are doing tuition as it is the holidays at the minute and only a few of the children are in class, but we have been welcomed by the director and headmistress of Mtwapa Academy and by some other friends here.
Our friend Fai has also accompanied us on this trip and she is settling really well, already she is nearly a resident!! Fai will also be updating the website during the trip so keep your eyes peeled for the latest!
Thanks to all your kind donations and support we have been able to identify four brothers who will be taken onto the sponsorship programme, which is very exciting news!! The four boys are living at the New Light Children's Home in Mtomondoni, a neighbouring residential area near Mtwapa.
Keep watching out for photos of the new sponsored children and more news soon!!
Thank-you again for all your support! It really is making a big difference here.
