(Part 2 of 2)

In case you missed it, read Part 1 here.

Another project we worked on during our stay in Kenya was building a computer lab for Sagero secondary school and showing the teachers how to work basic programs such as Microsoft word. The laptops we installed were also all donated to Project Kenya. This computer lab was one of very few in the region and the school was extremely grateful.

A very important part of my experience in Kenya was the little girl we stayed with. Her name was Brittany, she was four years old, and she was suffering from four major diseases simultaneously: malaria, ringworm, bronchitis, and measles. She was one tough little girl. She had medicine but it wasn’t working and one of the days we were there, she spiked a really high fever and we had to carry her to the hospital down the road. We got her some stronger medicine and she was eventually feeling better, but it was amazing to see this little girl run around and play, trying to fight off being sick, and then have to be taken to the hospital the next day. She is doing alright now, but I still think of her every day. I plan to go back to Kenya with Brydie in the upcoming years to visit her and the other friends I made and to volunteer at the new adopted school of Project Kenya: Nyamome Primary School.
