Christmas feast

December 30, 2015

Christmas season is here and it is also celebrated at our partner school: on Friday, December 5th 2015 all kids with the parents were invited to come and celebrate at the school. After the children's entertainment they started serving a rich meal for everybody, which was the highlight of the day! They distributed Pilaw (spiced rice with meat), Chapati (like a flat bread), Mandazi (sweet pastry), Maharagwe (beans), Salad, Cupcakes, Bananas & Sodas! Everybody was simply happy about all this food, which was donated by Sandro Steimer, Gerardo Palmisano & Nicolas Kleiner from Switzerland! The children & parents surely won't forget this sumptuous meal. We are very grateful for your generous gesture and say ASANTE SANA!

 

At the end of the celebration they also distributed secondhand clothes to the parents of the kids, which they brought home with happy faces. What a wonderful day for all!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OF YOU!

Last school day

December 7, 2015

On Friday, November 20th 2015 the school year has officially ended and the closing day was full of programs. First they had a small ceremony for the Kindergarden 3 Class, who now have left the Nursery and step into the Primary Education. For leaving the Nursery behind them they were given a certificate and also posed for a picture with the parent and the School director. All parents were invited for closing day and the kids entertained them with programs such as singing, dancing, fashion show, poets & acrobatics.

As usual on closing days, the best 3 students of each class were rewarded with small gifts from school. The special guest Sandra Louise Senn Mecuando (Member of Forever Kids Kenya) was honored to give out the gifts to the kids.

The highlight of the day was surely the short visit to the beach at the end of the day, where the children enjoyed swimming and playing in the water and the older kids with the staff challenged each other with beach football.

All in all it was a very exciting 2015 for Milele Education Centre with many improvements throughout the year. For all of this we are expressing our deepest gratitude to each and everybody, who has helped us along the way. Without you and your big hearts, we couldn't be where we are now!

We say: ASANTE SANA!

We are happy to announce that the 3rd Medical Camp has taken place at Milele Education Centre!

Staff event

October 1, 2015

Staff event the 2nd!

 

After a hardworking and exhausting day (for the first time and for a whole day they did computer lessons to teach the staff, starting with theory only) the fun part was on: Bowling! This game was very exciting as it was a new experience for everybody, most of them have never even heard of the existance of this game. Though being beginners, they handled the ball and pins quite well. And everybody is looking forward to the next round of Bowling!

Teambuilding Workshop

September 5, 2015

As school is closed for vacation, the staff remain busy and still stay connected with school. For the first time something was organised that on one side will improve the skills of the staff (communication, group work, trust, reaching goals together, creativity etc.) and on the other side is a lot of fun: Teambuilding event the first!

Beach sports day

August 16, 2015

Every school term ends with a sports day before the kids go home for vacation, and this is the biggest event they always look forward to! As they now have the rainy season in Kenya, the sports field was flooded. What to do? The staff had the best idea: why not take a 30 min. walk and have the sports day at the beach..? And so they did! Together with the upper classes they started their adventure...and it was awesome!

You can find the video here.

​Even in the slum creativity has no limits!

August 11, 2015

For the first time Milele Education Centre has done a creative arts contest. The excitement among the contributing kids (Class 4 - 8) was huge and the ideas almost never ending. The condition: in small groups the kids had to come up with their own projects, use their own materials, without the help of any teacher. We were impressed! See for yourself on these pictures!
