Building and Herding

Today the girls ventured off into the community surrounding the Olerai Farm. Half the group visited the primary school where they assisted teachers by proctoring and grading exams. The other half worked at the secondary school by helping to finish the construction of the boys’ dormitory. After a few hours of hard work the group came back for lunch and had a well-deserved rest time where they caught up on sleep.  They then learned about sustainability and the environment by planting trees and by making charcoal. Along with this, the girls herded cows with their Masai guide, Moses. The end of this afternoon adventure led to dinner and an evening meeting. After their exciting day the girls began to learn how privileged they are to be a part of such a wonderful community.
