Last tuesday evening we had a meeting for everyone who like to know more about WE4Kenya project.
Wilson is in Kenya since 9 January and Evelien and Naomi will go to him on 18 February.
Digging the well on the farmland that we bought a few months ago was unfortunately a bit delayed. The diggers had encountered big a jamb, and they were unable to dig trough. But on a good note: Wilson got a big megapower Kango drill sponsored from the Netherlands early September. Now, the well is more than 10 meters deep and has a diameter of approximately 2 meters.
They still need to drill trough a part of the jamb, but hopefully that’s all finished before the wet season presents itself with bursts of rain. When the digging and drilling is done, they will cement the edges all the way to the top and put a big fancy pump on it.
Yesterday team CODE had their first (and unfortunately last for now) Swahili session. They learned a lot, and are now able to chat, thank and greet in the traditional way. That comes in handy as they become part of the real Masaai family once they have settled in the just-completed new house! Wilson and his friends has worked very hard, but it definitely bore fruit.
The house is made out of a wooden structure, covered with corrugated iron sheets. The beds have been bought as well, and the lavatory had been completed already. Now team CODE can safely leave their warm rooms in Delft to switch to the Kenyan life.Team CODE consists out of four ambitious architecture students, but they all think Wilson has done a pretty good job! They can’t wait to leave.
