    This is such a noble work you are involved in. We all must give back to society.
    The projects are commendable and of great use to them.

  2. Congrats on your first community project! Very kind of you on doing your bit for the betterment of the lives of lesser privileged.
    Its indeed a challenge onto oneself to try working with the minimal raw materials and reuse and recycle everything!

    This is a very positive thing to do for the local community in Kenya. It must have been rewarding when you made the gutter and water tank successfully the first time. One day I would love to volunteer in Africa, maybe Kenya.

      It really was! And to just know that these kids would have clean drinking water when it rained was such a good feeling! Definitely do it, absolutely fantastic! The locals were soo grateful!

    I’m so jealous that you got to participate in a community project! I love volunteering but haven’t been able to much service since having kids. One of my plans is to volunteer on one of our trips at some point. This looks like a great project to teach kids not only about giving back but also to reduce, reuse and recycle. Love it!

    David, it’s really great that you and Tasha got the chance to work on the community project. It’s amazing work. The tables remind me of the ones we had in school when I was young. It’s great that you’ll could do that just with a hammer. Did you’ll take Travis along on this trip?

    • David says:

      It was quite an achievement to build anything as all we had was minimal tools and scrap wood! No Travis wasn’t on this trip. Thanks for commenting!

  6. What a great thing to do. I think it’s always great to giveback in whatever you can when travelling, especially if people have been so hospitable or welcoming. I’m not to proficient in DIY but ‘d still like give something like this a go!

    This is such a meaningful way to travel. I hope I am able to travel someday like this. Engaging with locals by participating in a community project must be a life changing experience. And Kenya is a perfect for for that.

    It’s certainly an interesting way to spend a day whilst travelling. It’s always nice to give back to the communities that we travel within. Jsut a few questions – How did you find this opportunity? Was it one that you had to pay for? How were you involved in the construction of the guttering? Oh so many questions!

    • David says:

      So my work had offered me the opportunity to go and work with the school. I am not totally sure how they found it. I didn’t have to pay anything to volunteer here. So I was part of a team that attached the gutter system to the side of the building and then into the water tank. haha its okay, feel free to ask anymore that you may have. Thanks for commenting.

  9. I have always wanted to associate with some community project. This is definitely lots of hard work but the satisfaction that one gets is amazing. I bet when you saw the faces of all the little kids and the teachers at the school, it must have been exhilarating. It is very important to make others lives better.

      That feeling you get knowing how much good you are doing for the kids and teachers at the school is very difficult to explain! A real magical feeling!
