Walls Grand Opening of the Wholistic School!
Wholistic Center in Ruiru, Kenya opens new school built by With My Own Two Hands Foundation!
With the generous donations made by donors and supporters the new school is complete!
WMO2H volunteer team arrived in Kenya to participate in opening ceremony.
The team was welcomed with open arms by all the kids in new uniforms, trees for each team member to plant, a WMO2H logo wall to be painted and branded with our own two hands, and a permanent plaque honoring WMO2H as well as individual plaques for those who donated classrooms.
The volunteers also participated in a ceremony to sweep the new classrooms and load in all the brand new desks.
In addition to the beautiful new school, the old school building has been fully renovated with brand new windows, fresh paint, a full computer lab, and indoor plumbing. As a result of all of the improvements, university educated teachers are applying for employment and many new students in the surrounding area are looking to be enrolled.
Last March a WMO2H volunteer team was at the center and supervised the drilling of a borehole and completed the construction of a chicken coop at the project. The new borehole and pump are now creating a steady income for Wholistic as they sell the water to neighbors, improved sanitary conditions with running water, and provides watering systems for their fruit trees and vegetable gardens. The chicken coop allows for regular egg generation.
This project is a perfect example of how WMO2H mission statement works.
Creating sustainable solutions increases productivity and stimulates income and growth, as well as an overall pride in ownership for the project directors.
