Have together with our passengers and Mrs. Schmidt, owner Kerstin Oppenheimer and Verona Dankert, our employees Kerstin Oppenheimer visited our school in Kenya and Verona Dankert together with our passengers and Mrs. Schmidt, proprietor who visited our school in Kenya. Here is the report by Kerstin Oppenheimer: 1.Besuch of school we met at the hotel with one of the German teachers, Mr. Ngala, and Shanzu drove together to the village to the old school building.

After an exciting ride off the road on dust roads past huts with their adjacent outdoor areas, we reached beside a small corn field the old”grey school. It was very quiet, teaching. Enters the darker rooms to curious eyes of the children looked at us. Nice and restrained erwiederten you our Jambo”. The teacher interrupted the lesson and we were greeted in the chorus even on German, perfect German.

Some of the children were already relaxed and waved also. In total there were 3 classrooms, where teaching older kids were (age 3 to 6.), we gathered in the so-called teacher room, to talk with the Director of the school, Mr. Ramos,. This room had only a simple wooden table with drawer and wood chairs. In the course was a large wooden cabinet. The classroom had desks and a Blackboard and solid concrete floor, roof made of corrugated iron. Since we had the gifts of the godparents of some children here, were after the children briefly brought from the teaching and passing on photos for the godparents. Then I asked the teacher to select some children who had no godparents. First came a girl, about 7 years old, which I handed over a cuddly teddy bear for my son and sweet. Trish children’s eyes glowed me and the girls cuddled in gratitude on my arm. I was very, very touched. Then I had some that have become too small pants of my son, for we guys were looking for matching size, what was not so easy. It did me so infinitely sorry again with empty hands back in the classroom to a boy who was already too big. As I got out, that he had several small brothers, I gave him the pants for this and he had a happy face expression. Then we sat down in the not concrete courtyard of the school and were talking about the next few days. Emotionally stirred up we continued with our taxi driver to the new school. Again between huts, we reached a small barren earth terrain on its left side is a wooden building or better was a frame with low wood walls, airy open, barren. Children raged straight on their”schoolyard around. On the other hand towards the building of a Palm tree and scrub a large piles of trash! The children went in your classrooms. It is the smallest pupils to the kindergarten group. Also here we were greeted warmly in the choir, also partly in German. We distributed our remaining age-appropriate gifts: small plush toys, hair ties,. Shirt, pants and sweet again burned a is deeply gluckstrahlenden faces in us.
