A new puppy for the kids - a companion for Teddy

Since Teddy had been guarding our big compound alone since a looong time we wanted him to have a comrade.

Caroline went to Nairobi and found this cute, three month old puppy. The brother from the first litter looks like the dark copy of Teddy so the decision was made to buy the dog.
After washing, vaccinating, checking and feeding it, Caroline called the children in Diani and asked how the new dog is supposed to be called. Their choice was Jessy.

 

It will stay for one month care in Nairobi and will return together with Caroline begin of October to Diani. We will keep you updated how the kids and Teddy will react on its arrival.

Makemba Academy

Our young children had their first day at a new school today.

The destroyed fire at Mekaela, the damaged Kindergarten unit that had not been finished yet and the big number of pupils per class caused the transfer to Makemba Academy.

The conditions at Makemba are perfect due to a maximum of 15 children per class, especially for our older boys that started schooling late and have to catch up a lot. Some are already 10 years old and supposed to be in class 4 but are still struggling in class 1.

 

Only our three oldest boys remain at Mekaela and will definitely stay there until the end of the year, which is also the end of the school year in Kenya. Then a decision will be made with their best interest at heart.
