Each year (as funds allow) Pamoja likes to help families with rebuilding / repairing houses. This is often a vital boost for families who can not afford to make even basic repairs to their house.

Sue & Richard update Saturday 9th April As I write in Nairobi late on Saturday afternoon, the rain is coming down and the thunder rumbling around. We’ve had some very pleasant warm days (rather like the best of an English summer) since arriving back here late on Tuesday, but there is definitely a change in […]

Sue and Richard update Saturday 2nd April

Here we are again!  Weather report first:  most of this week has continued to be hot – so hot in fact that the locals are complaining!  We hit 37 one day, but last night we had a thunderstorm (accompanied by the inevitable power cut) and some rain, and today has become cooler – the locals […]

Sue and Richard update Easter Sunday

Posted by on Apr 6, 2016 in News, Stannard | No Comments

First of all, a very happy and blessed Easter to you all! Unfortunately it is unlikely that you will read this any time close to Easter as the internet here in rural Kenya is even slower and less reliable than it was when we were here in the autumn, so I’m writing on Word while […]

Sue in Ahero, Richard in Nairobi

Posted by on Mar 20, 2016 in News | No Comments

The last two weeks have been strange: we don’t spend much time apart, and I have to say honestly (even!) after over 30 years of marriage, we don’t much like it! But it made sense this time for Sue to make the most of the time available, so that’s what we did. So, according to […]

Sue & Richard – postscript to our trip

Posted by on Dec 1, 2015 in News, Stannard | No Comments

So, after six fascinating weeks, our trip to Kenya is over. Our last day in Nairobi was spent at the Kware Care Centre, with various Pamoja workers and sponsored children. It was good to meet Stephen, the medical officer from the clinic at Endau. He is surely one of our unsung heroes, working alone as he […]

Sue & Richard update Sunday 22nd November

We are safely back in Nairobi, enjoying a few slightly more relaxed days around the family as our time in Kenya draws to a close.  Last Monday we went back to the care centre and the school for the last time to say our farewells (or ‘au revoirs’).  We had a final singing session with some […]
