When Fox River took the first trip over to see the schools in Bomani and Vipingo, we were so happy to meet the very first KG 3 classes. Now today we were so privileged to be there for their graduation from Standard 8! They have grown up before our eyes, into these wonderful teenagers who will be starting a new chapter in their lives....high school.
Following the graduation ceremony, the team was able to spend time with the children and the graduates. Some people made connections with children and really enjoyed a day of rest. On a normal medical trip our goal is to help as many people as we can so that doesn't leave time to take it all in and make connections with the children.
In the afternoon we had time to spend doing some health promotion teaching. Our goal is to leave here knowing we shared our skills and knowledge to help people improve their health and the community's health as well.
Jill and Cindy taught the teachers about first aid and CPR
The time was well spent today, building relationships, teaching, and recognizing the graduates and teachers for a job well done.
Tomorrow we will do our last medical clinic day in Bomani. We look forward to working with the children there.
