in one year, it was ten years ago

Anyone who travel to Kenya and meet the leaders, teachers and children at La Unica child care centre will recieve as warm welcome as I was greeted in feb 2008. The trip has truly marked my remaining life. Meeting these warm and wonderful families have done great impact on me. Today I have updated some of the photogalleries from various projects. With “Pay i Forward” in mind (hope youve seen that movie). I now spread this update on both blog and facebook. Who knows? Have you dreamt of making a difference in the world? Heres an option.

My remaining service consists of building bridges, education for high school girls and boys.IMG_20131208_132638

I add the letter from principal Catherine and Exec sec. David, who run the school along with the womens group.

“From David and entire family,

Lanica School.
 
 
Dear Hans and Family,
 
Its With sincere hope that you are all in good health both spiritually and physically. Having not spoken to you for a period of time due to somes challenges here and there, apologies for the silence dear friend.
 
The Chrismas gifts arrived as beads and a small bag inside the casing, see the pictures taken by Andrew(Phone) at a recent date. I was feeling the uneasiness for the long unbroken silence. But at least now the debt is settled with this proper communication.
 
Moreover, family is fine and running properly, Andrew at school and Gerald still pushing the course and waiting for future plans. Purity at level eight and Charity level six. Baby Bilhah at level baby class and still growing stronger and attending her physical therapy sessions.
 
Otherwise may you have a happy time and prosperous 2015 with new hope and higher expectations.
 
May God double your loving spirit and level your vision.
 
 
Regards;
 
Yours in loving spirit,
David & Catherine& family.”
Feel free to contact me for a personal “fadderbarn” engagement, from 50 SEK – 250 SEK a month, depending not on their, but your budget. A full year in highschool in Kenya costs about 250 SEK amonth at present, depending on what school that offers a seat for the child. One sponsor per child or several sponsors for one child, no matter. What is important is hope for a brighter future through education.

Update from La Unica – building project

Andrew, son of Catherine and David at La Unica wrote and enclosed these two pictures from Lusigetty, first I thought it was for La Unica, same area and style, but this one is for their family to live in. Hope they can complete it.

“Everyone is fine too at home. They are working on a building project for a permanent shelter. That is a two bedroom house and its already began though due to some issue stopped last week. Hoping that all will be well soon. ( Pics during ground work. Was around to help in the digging the trenches at least) .”

I am happy they are people with both visions and practice. Practical visionaries! Such examples of bringing hope into the world. This world needs people who will not give up hope. They are examples for us all.

David Gaitunga, father, carpenter, electrician and exec sec for La Unica told me of shelter for visitors and teachers when I was there to visit 2008. I was presented with a neat plan for the La unica child care centre lot. The houses they planned constructing and what their purpose etc. They found a partner in me, but Im a bridge builder and just one man trying to do some good in this world. See below drawing from 2008 made by David Gaitunga, Executive director of LA Unica. When I saw the drawing I was amazed with the exactness, about half of the houses were real at that time and by now further development have taken place due to their hope and strong work, and funds, both Kenyan and Swedish. They are not sitting idle hoping to find a moneytree growing at their feet. They are hard working people.

davidslaunicatoday Teacher quarters, latrine, agriculture field and one extended classroom have sofar been built. These people are strong with their goals in mind. But all people could use some support in one way or another. If you have a bit extra time, funds and/or friendship feel free to let me know and the bridge will be built.

Previous bridges built up to the year 2012 when I became ill these bridges were built. se attached word file:
