Endings and New Beginnings at Nakuru

by Nora, Work-study Medical Intern, Nakuru

This week, I, along with Alice and Stone, two other volunteers, went to Abraham and Moses’ track race.  It was very exciting to get to see this event in person.  The kids run so much faster than I could ever hope to, and they were barefoot and in skirts!  After suffering some muscle strains, Abraham was able to get second in the 3000 meter event, and Moses got third in the 1500 meter event.  Both of them qualified for the next race on Monday, and we are so excited for them!

One of our directors, Becky, has had her mom visiting for the past two weeks.  Last night was her last night here, so I got to experience my first goodbye tradition.  The kids were all dancing and singing. I tried to sing along, but they were just too good.  It’s rare that all the kids are in one place, united, so it was really lovely to see and experience it.  It was a lively room full of love and laughter and dancing.  It was sad to see her go, and we will miss her. However, another volunteer comes tomorrow and we can’t wait to meet her.
