New Computer Room at Red Rose:

The visiting board members of Children of Kibera inaugurated the fully equipped computer lab at Red Rose last week. The Dell D610 computers were donated by St. Lawrence University in Canton NY.

Potomac-Red Rose Teacher Exchange Launched

Ms. Cindy Cheadle, a second grade teacher at Potomac is the first exchange participant, spending two weeks this summer in Nairobi working with the teachers and students at Red Rose. The plan is to get a Red Rose teacher to go to Potomac School in the Spring of 2009. Children of Kibera Foundation will be raising additional funds to cover the cost of bringing the Red Rose teacher for about three weeks to the USA.

Children of Kibera Foundation Board Members at Redrose.

Merrell Cherouny, Children of Kibera foundation's executive director and Mittie Rooney, Children of Kibera foundation's secretary along with Ken Okoth are spending two weeks, helping out at Red Rose School, visiting other schools and projects in Kibera that serve vulnerable children and getting a better insight into the scope of the challenges the children face and how best to help them in the future. The board members had a meeting with the guardians of the 46 children fully sponsored by the foundation and also treated the children and teachers to a field day that included a visit to the National Museum. The children were also given new shoes that had been donated by friends of Children of Kibera Foundation, this really brought a big smile to the children most of whom had worn out shoes a big ASANTE SANA! from me on their behalf.

Below are some of the pictures from Merrell,Mittie, Cindy and Kens stay here at Redrose.
