You are probably tired of hearing me saying how lucky I am, but as the days go by, I keep discovering more and more reasons for this. There is nothing more rewarding than being able to see so many different projects progress day by day. The school teams this season are unstoppable. Give them the tools and make sure all the various materials are on site and watch the buildings grow… Muhaka Primary School is just opposite ouråÊCamp and over the last few years, there have been various developments. Thanks to support fromåÊSally’s Trust and the insatiable appetite for construction of hundreds of school teams, it won’t be long before the new school library and computer will be up and running: Meanwhile,åÊRukinga Ranch where ouråÊCamp Tsavo is located,åÊis abuzz with all sorts of activities ranging from general maintenance of the ranch to some very important milestones for Rukinga including a complete refurbishment of a massive water tank that was once used for livestock and now is a critical source of water for the elephants on the ranch: Yesterday I went up the hill toåÊMwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary which has got to be one of the most beautiful spots in this country. The school teams were just settling in so Steve, our project coordinator and myself went for a quick spin to Ngonzini Primary School which has also got to be one of the most dynamic schools I have come across. Their wildlife club helps maintain the tree nursery, the kids make aloe vera soap and they have an amazing nature trail! When the school approached us for help this season, everyone knew straight away that the we had something invaluable to offer: over 300 pairs of hands and a lot of energy to sort out the erosion problems at the school. The netball pitch is almost ready and thanks to a direct donation from Southfield they will soon have a fully operating netball pitch: Tis’ indeed the season to be digging but tis’ also the season to flipflopping! My personal favourite this season… Papa Pata Pata…
