Construction Update

IMG_2134-2Due to our successful Giving Tuesday campaign this past November, Reason2Smile was able to address the structural damage that occurred because of the Kenya government paving the road in front of the Jambo Jipya School. While this was a much-needed improvement, there was no proper drainage, run off or sewer system included. The elevated cement road allowed a huge pool of runoff water to settle against the wall of the school causing damage that needed to be addressed immediately. The construction work took place during the month of December while school was not in session. We are happy with the results – a new fortified wall and foundation, runoff drainage and roof repair work. I will personally inspect the construction project this March/April when I make my next trip to Kenya.
