In the words of George Martin, ‘’A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies and the one who never reads lives only one.’’
It is with great joy that we celebrate yet another life changing success this year in Esiteti Primary School, Amboseli. For three months we have been overseeing construction of a fantastic library for the school. The work began on 1st August 2019, with funding from long-term supporters A E Reimann Foundation and Skål International Monaco. We also appreciate the generous donation from Derrick and Kimberly Birum which has gone a long way to provide furniture, equipment, computers and books.
The construction was finished on the 24th October thanks to hard work from our regular contractor teams, Mofo Contractors and Building Company. Our structural engineer Anthony Mwai from Vector Africa Limited visited to inspect the works and has declared it complete and ready to equip.
This three month project has seen us realize a one of a kind library in Kitirua conservancy where the school sits. The library is large at a total of 4,185 square ft and is able to accommodate at least two classes in a sitting. It will be equipped with a computer section, reading area with shelving, and an arts and crafts room seating up to 30 children at a go. Shelves, desks, computers and aert and crafts equipment are all on order and being delivered over the next few weeks and we expect to have a fully furnished library by 15th of December 2019, ready for the new school term which commences in January 2020.
We trust that this investment will provide much needed support for the ever-growing community at Esiteti Primary School and the larger Kitirua Conservancy. It is a delight to see the changes at Esiteti, watching the student numbers grow and their exam results improve. We would like to thank all of you who have been a part of this journey!
