In September 2006, a group of 19 Irish volunteers travelled to Watamu, Kenya to renovate the Infant School at the SDA Primary School. This infant school catered for 200 kids ranging in age from two to five years old. This building was old and in an extremely dangerous condition. It was in desperate need of renovation. This building not only served as the infant classes but also acted as a place of safety for the many orphans cared for by the school. During the project, we repaired the back wall, cut and erected a new roof, removed and replaced interior walls and partitions, painted inside and out and re-wired the whole building. Our volunteers also tried out their artistic skills and painted pictures on the walls to brighten up the rooms. We even painted the floors! The children in the school had nowhere to play so we also built a playground beside the school. This went down a treat with the children, most of whom had never seen swings!
