This is the current kitchen at the Kiahuko Primary School for the 487 students.

This is the inside of the kitchen and the saint-of-a-woman who cooks a midday meal for all of the students and staff.

The children line up for their daily meal of githeri (maize, beans, and onions).

The ground is measured for the new kitchen. You can see the classrooms in the background.

Gravel, sand, and rocks will be used for the foundation.

Digging trenches for the foundation. Notice the existing kitchen in the back.

Trenches finished and first concrete. And, yes, that’s the old kitchen still there in the background.

Walls beginning to go up.

Foundation in and walls begun.

Roof trusses installed.

Roof is done.

Door and Serving Windows are in.

With the cook; inside the old, outside the new. Notice the old kitchen to the left of the new kitchen in the bottom right photo.

Finishing inside and out.

Almost finished. Compare with the very first photo, above, in this gallery.

Jikos are in and front side view.

The cook having a ‘Jetson’ moment, and the plaque commemorating the project.

The principal and TGUP’s NGO partner, and the whole school celebrate.

Before and After.

Thank you Kiwanis clubs and members! The world is a better place because of you.
