Visitors to the Centre:
Makindu Children’s Program new Executive Director Helen Gundlach and Board Member Dan Dizney visited the Makindu Children’s Centre in March & April. Helen and Dan had a great trip, and spent their days meeting the MCC staff, children, guardians, the Kenyan Advisory Council members, the Nairobi East rotary club, and more. One of the highlights of their trip was escorting a large number of Makindu kids on a sarafari to Tsavo National Park.
Spring break for many Makindu Centre students came at the end of March and throughout part of April. Students come home during their vacation and join a structured program at the Centre, which includes include counseling on various life issues, a review of their progress at school, and one-on-one individual support. Particular attention has been given to children sitting for examinations later this year.
