Emmaloba village

Last week we spent a couple of days in Emmaloba where we have a Rotary Matching grant. The Victoria Rotary Club has provided clean water, books, uniforms and feeding to this school.
We met with the Maseno Rotary Club and dicussed how to move forward with the remaining parts still to be realised. Thanks to the feeding and planting programe 90% of the children in the school ahve been fed throughout the year. Some pay a little if they are able, others are sustained anyway. The school took on the tree nursery grant and has about 600 seedlings (some on a private plot, belonging to Boaz (in the picture) They aim for 10,000 seedlings, the market is good and the income will maintain the feeding program in future.
