Mike and Reva Visit Red Rose School

Mike and Reva arrived at the Red Rose School early Monday morning. This was not only their first time in Kenya, but their first time in Africa. The children were very excited and warmly received them at the school assembly grounds with great songs and dance that they had prepared for the visitors.

After an inspiring talk from Mike about his career-of being an orthodontist, our visitors got a chance to talk and connect with the children from the various grades and exchanged experiences of the two worlds. They also had the chance to meet some of the Children of Kibera Foundation high school scholars who had already closed school for the holidays.

Our visitors carried with them special gifts for the Red Rose Children. With a whole suitcase full of dental hygiene supplies, colored pencils and note books, each child went home with a toothbrush, toothpaste and dental floss.
In the company of the high school scholars, they had the chance to take a walk through a section of Kibera to experience firsthand the kind of environment that the children at Red Rose School come from and grow in.

It was a pleasant day at the Red Rose School and the children were happy to make new friends from New York. We at the Red Rose School sincerely thank Mike and Reva for visiting and spending time in Kibera with our children. You are always welcome.
