Sierra Club and Green Belt Movement Members Visit Red Rose
This summer we hosted Sierra Club and Green Belt Movement members from the USA led by Mr. Matt Finch, uncle to Potomac School alum Chris Coe. Chris visited Kenya for community service in June 2007 with his former teacher Ken Okoth, and urged his uncle to suppor tand visit the school too. Indeed, Mr. Finch made sure that he and his group of 18 travellers visiting Kenya to learn about environmental sustainability put aside some time in their hectic schedule to visit Red Rose and spend some time with the teachers and students there. They shared songs and dances with the children and gave the school a lot of classroom supplies they had brought with them. The children and teachers at Red Rose are very grateful for the gifts and were happy to make some more new friends.
