Cura is an impoverished community about 45 minutes from Nairobi. The local population is about 25,000, most existing on $30 per month or less.
In January 2009, our volunteer group painted an entire resource facility, set up a library of 2500 fully catalogued books, equipped a computer lab, provided library and computer training, re-furbished the nursery school (flooring, paint, and decorations), made improvements to the orphanage, and installed a playground. This facility has transformed the community.
Evelyn Mungai, our Cura liaison writes: Words are not adequate to express our deep appreciation, gratitude, and happiness for your gift to the people of Cura. We ARE all deeply indebted to you and to your team! Cura is now a model village with a hope for the future. The Resource Center has been visited by the communities around, my fellow Rotarians and so many others. The children's playground is a pride of joy for the community too. What can we really say - on their behalf THANK YOU and may God bless the work of your hands.... to enable you continue serving and making a difference wherever you go.
The Board has finally recruited a computer teacher and she has started teaching the little ones as well as members of the Cura Community. We will keep you posted of progress we make.Cura Orphanage
