Entering Hupenyu Village property.
In 2012, we had some people from Kenya come and teach Rennie and her team, about Double Digging farming. It's an amazing technique which has been very helpful to them.
Steve is a plumber, he came to help us install and commission the new bore hole.
Drilling the bore hole. They had to go down sixty meters to get the good stuff! They now have amazing water!
One of the projects was to build and new chicken coop. Now there are approximately four-hundred and fifty laying hens. Self-sustainability is a key to alleviating poverty!
They now sell their eggs in the local market.
Rennie receives her new, used, truck. Her previous car was a 1982 Mazda 323. Yeah, it was about time for a replacement, one that could actually do the job! :)
The Foundations for the three homes being dug.
They dig by hand, and yes, it's tough work. I'm always impressed with the work ethic of the people we have supporting with labour, what you support with finances..
Laying the footing bricks, in the exact pattern as the walls will be erected above the ground.
Keeping it all straight. It's truly a work of art!
Footings taking shape. And all this meticulous work, just to be covered up again!
Rennie, tamping down the backfill in the foundation, before the cement is poured.
Here we go. Formed and backfilled. The foundations are almost done.
Here we have the foundations being flooded with cement, to create the floor for the next phase.
Done and drying! In a few weeks, this will be ready for what comes next!
