We received a call from building project manager Akini who was working in Kenya to rebuild a school and houses that had been knocked down by wild African animals– much like the animals we read about in the story Handa’s Surprise.
These wild animals had caused devastating destruction of the local school and surrounding homes. As we had so much knowledge on Kenya, Akini rang us to ask for help.
We soon set off making lists of building materials we would need and personal items would need – a lot of sun cream, sun hats, water, a torch, ladder etc. We planned our buildings on a small scale and got our passports ready for the next available flight to Kenya.
