Sunday, July 13, 2014 – Lamu Mentally handicapped children enjoy a better life

Today we visited the Lamu school for mentally handicapped children.  This school continues to make incredible progress.  Keith Leavitt wanted to follow up from the workshop that Mr. Bute attended in Kericho.  We have also started a renovation project of some classrooms and buildings so we went to review the progress.

Our journey begins by boat with Keith being carried into the boat.

New mattresses and bed sheets are in place.  For some reason the girls dorm has the blue bed sheets and the boys dorm has the pink bed sheets.
