Entasupa! Greetings to all from the Maasai people in Kenya!
We are so pleased that you have chosen to join our village here at Nabuur and become part of the Kajiado volunteer team. We hope that you will take time to introduce yourself here. Please tell us where you are from and a little bit about your experience.
We look forward to getting to know you and are certain that if we join hands together, our project will be a success. Thank you again for being a part of making our dream a reality!
At this moment, there are two volunteers in Kisozi. In the future, we would like to see more volunteers get involved and moreover, we would like to be more professional as far as volunteers, attracting volunteers and guiding volunteers is concerned.
This means that would like to set up a database of volunteers that have worked or are working for HAU. Also, we feel that we need to make guidelines for volunteers. And we would like to make a contract for volunteers that work for HAU.
We would like to ask someone to help us with:
COMASA has been working with Nakyerongosa community to increase access among the people to safe water, latrines and good hygiene practices. Some success has been achieved and there has been increased awareness among the people of the need for good hygiene practices and a reduction in the incidences of diseases associated with drinking unsafe water and poor sanitation and hygiene practices. A lot has been done and we are very grateful to all the partners that have continued to give us advice and support.
As mentioned in the background summary, a big goal is to get more rooms for the school in order to teach more children.

We had a meeting last Monday at Kiserian village which was started by a prayer from one of our community members, Ester Muthoni.
The main issue of the meeting was how we can get a big space or a big school. One of the member suggested to rent a school which was vacant. He got a lot of support from community members to the issue and we sent some members to go next day to ask about it.
Help us to find organizations, websites, NGO's, etc that can be important to help Buterere raise funds or collect money.
Daniel received this email from the Global Fund for Children:
Please read the background on the school which can be found here.
For this task, every neighbour is invited to post their ideas.
One idea which was implemented already was to sell bracelets, soap, salt, paper bags & toothpicks at the Kiserian market to generate income for the school. Also, children who are enrolled pay a fee.
Do you have any ideas what else can be done? The aim is to make the school at least self-sufficient.
