Marcia Meyer is a retired teacher from Portland Oregon who wanted to volunteer as a teacher in Kenya. I thought she will be a great fit for Nkoilale primary and her and Grace will make a great team and as you can see in these pictures, they have become BEST friends, In fact they are roommates.
I spoke to Marcia earlier this morning and she told me that she felt so natural being in Nkoilale she spoke very highly of Grace, and she LOVES the Kids. She has been their only 10 days and she having a great time with the kids and visiting the village and meeting the locals. She is planning on staying and volunteering at Nkoilale until April next year. She will be sharing her story with us when she gets settled.
(Grace Wrote this) Today I took Marcia to Seiyio’s home. She was very happy to see her at home. We had a very long talk and I took a video. I will see how it will get to you. We also passed through Nickson’s home. Good news is that, Marcia met Nickson’s sister who is ten yrs old and has not been enrolled to school. She asked me to ask her if she would like to go to school. She was so sad that she started crying and that touched Marcia’s heart that she decided to sponsor her to school. We are going to visit the family on Sunday in order to meet with her father. We would like to talk to him to allow his daughter to join school in January. I hope all goes well and Sinore joins school in the New Year.
