“Decrepit” is too kind a word to describe the former kitchen at the Kanjuu Secondary School in Kenya. See below. Yet, the mid-day meal is sometimes the only meal many students receive.
The new kitchen is 30’ x 15’ and is separated into two rooms: one for cooking, and one for supplies. The building sits on a cement foundation with windows and grills for proper ventilation. There are two locking steel doors providing access.
The community contributed $2,200 in labor to keep the cost down. Thank you to Cynthia Liddell and Alan Tottle who funded the building. And thank you to the students at Stockdale High School in Bakersfield who funded the new jikos for cooking the students’ meals.
