During the summer holidays over the last two days before school opened officially we have been at Mtwapa Academy searching for damaged desks, chairs or benches which can be recycled, fixed and re-used in classrooms. We have taken to our new mantle of 'fundi' (An all round swahili word for 'tradesman') and are enjoying hammering and sawing with two of the directors children Eric and Mercy...although we often find that despite their youth they can far out do our feeble efforts!
Now the children are all back at school, and nothing has fallen apart (yet!) so fingers crossed it all seems to have gone very well!!
