This was Bret's first email with photos of this trip. The photos show the initial construction of the classrooms and cistern in this village. My previous post showed the project a little further along. I think it is interesting to see how the Kenyan's do their work with the most rudimentary of tools and materials, as well as concepts.

I just arrived in the village late yesterday, and as a first matter of business I drove up to Peku (Pay-Coo) today to see how the work was progressing.

The construction of the first of two Veracity classrooms have given a distinct outline of the project. The Aclaime water cistern is located at the side of the school, as visualized in a couple of the photos with the round foundation and wire extending upwards. Until now the children have been meeting under a tree and drinking swill from a nearby watering hole.
Within two weeks this construction site will look like a school site, and within 3 1/2 weeks the children will be filling the classroom and enjoying the water from the cistern.
