Just wanted to give all our friends and family at home a brief update on the goings on here at the CYEC this weekend ! –

We have been doing lots of manual labor around the center the past few days . . . In the shamba (garden in kiswahili) students have been weeding and preparing for the planting of banana trees. New compost bins are being built close to the shamba as well. Lumber has arrived for the new rabbit hutches to be built, and the carpentry students are hard at work and beginning to build the hutches with the help of Alayna and Brad. Other CYEC students are reconstructing the goat pens so that they have a raised and slated floor. The Penn State students haven’t been afraid to pitch in and get their hands dirty!

On the business side of things- we are working out the details for our first proposed microfinance loan for the poultry production. The other Ag enterprises including bees, rabbits, goats, and gardening have been working with their counterparts to implement new record keeping methods.

In exciting news- honey was harvested for the first time last night from the bees! We tried some for breakfast- it was delicious.

It’s hard to believe we only have three more days here at the Center ! By this time on Tuesday most of us will be on our way to Nairobi to catch our flights. Lots to finish up here in the last few days. We will try to keep you updated. As always, thanks for reading!
