This is a small clip from Geoffrey speaking today as our project began with lots of the students joining at school on this Saturday. He encourages the students to give back to the community as their educational opportunities improve and thanks the Nyeri Rotary Club for joining the efforts of our Elk Grove Rotary Club in working together in this successful project.

Just want to give a huge shout out to Geoffrey! We could never have had the success we have experienced at Iruri without his guidance, cooperative spirit, friendship, leadership, and willingness to work with us, these sometimes crazy "muzungus". You should have heard his amazement when we asked him if we could put together a feast to honor our first graduates in 2015. And by the way we would like to have a bull slaughtered!!! After he got over his surprise he said I think we need two bulls! But he did it! And the community came together, 500 people for the big event. So we thank you Geoffrey for all that you do!
