Service project assists elderly Samburu man

As part of their scholarship requirements, SYEF recipients participate in service projects during each of the three annual school breaks.  In April, the students pooled their energy and time to rebuild the failing hut of an elderly Samburu man.  They repaired the mud walls, weaved new thatched pieces for the roof, replaced broken beams, shook out the animals hides and picked up trash around the place.  Little kids stood by and watched what was going on; passers-by gave our SYEF youth kudos for their humanitarian work. This is what SYEF is all about: nurturing leaders, helping each other, and building a community norm that values investment in youth.
