Four Photos and Stories About What We Did in June
Visitors at Rossholme School
One Friday morning we picked up three friends who had just arrived in Nairobi and took them to Rossholme School in Kiambiu slum. There they helped to distribute new shoes and uniforms to students who had lost theirs in the flood that washed away their homes.

Elephant Orphanage
On Saturday morning we did a game drive with seven friends, including two teens and a five-year-old boy, in Nairobi National Park. And later that morning we went to Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage to see baby elephants that had been recused after their mothers died probably at the hands of poachers.

St. John Bosco Parent's Day
The following Friday, in Kitale, we attended Parents and Guardians Day at St. John Bosco Rehabilitation Centre. After the workshops for the adults, the children danced, everyone enjoyed lunch - and all 55 parents and guardians, and some grandmothers too, had their photos taken with their children.
