I started the month of June in style together with a group of incredible friends. We Celebrated our Holiday – Madaraka Day – in a very special way that we believed would transform the lives of Children at Eldoret Rescue Centre in a celebrative mood.
We abandoned our businesses and comfort zones on the bright noon of the 2nd day of June and with the clear serene sky of Kenya beneath heavens, we left to visit Eldoret Children Rescue Centre in Eldoret town, Mwanzo Estate.
It was a day of a 15-member team to give to the tens of children, among other things, food, clothes, hope, love, empowerment, a precious together-time, inspire and make a friend or two, perhaps a foster family. It has been my passion to give back to the society in one way or the other by empowering community through donations, crowdfunding or sourcing, among other activities like this one about JFA – a school I volunteered my services.
We arrived in a grand entry of a vibrant youths and within seconds we sat at the Social Room, to make a plan of how we will conduct our visitation program. We allocated ourselves various tasks to tackle including Scripture Reading, Motivational Talk, Inspirational Stories, Songs, Drama, Question-Answer Session, among others.
I had a good time with Sandra – the girl who accepted to call me uncle and was really happy with me.
We were with Ruth Nabwile Baraza, Dimo Kevin Mackolweny, Justus Naa Okutu, Dorys Baraza, John Kigera, Jerioth Wangechi, Elizabeth Njoki, Molly Anyango Masella, Lillian Manyura, Esther Akinyi Ochieng, Mike Rono Jnr, Dorothy Cheso Kadogo, Peter Ogothe, Linda Sechelle, Wilson Otiato and of course Dismas Kipsongok
We went inside the hall and found a gathering ready for us. Dimo Kevin quickly kicked off our program by sharing a word of God. Linda Sechelle rocked the stage second from our team and entertained the kids with a song and a bit of illustrations. She sang with a girl who raised up her hand and wanted to sing with Linda.
This continued until two more boys rocked the stage – to sing and dance with our cute Linda.
They had a presentation too, to entertain us. They made some dance moves alongside their favourite beats. Their faces could show how happy they were, dancing.
Me and Ruth were assigned to deal with the Baby, Middle and Top Class kids. They were very young but we made sure they were happy and inspired. After Peter gave his motivational talk, my turn onstage incorporated a story. I gave them this story about Two Horses and explained how it related to them, their sponsors and God.
We all later went to stage as a group for group introduction. The next thing we did is serve the kids food ourselves. This was a good gesture. We queued them up and served them juice, biscuits, popcorns and sweets.
This event reminded me of the latest Voluntary Community Work I did at JFA.
