FARAJA CENTRE KITCHEN PROJECT
The Faraja kitchen project is in its initial stages. The kitchen is a modern one known as a gulley kitchen (open kitchen). The kitchen will be constructed in the centre’s hall. The purpose of the kitchen will be to make the feeding program for the kids that happens every Saturday at the centre more successful and easy, since before food was made from other places and brought to the centre. The kitchen will also generate income that will be used to run Faraja programs.
Diane Priestley from the U.K is spear heading the project. For the last two weeks we have been meeting an electrician called Elias, to install power points in the hall, a plumber called Gichuru, to do the plumbing work and install a tank with filters to provide clean water to drink for the children and for cooking. We also met James from Streamline Ltd from Nairobi, a company that will install the kitchen. This was all for the preparation of the project kick off.
This week on Monday Elias the electrician and his team arrived early to install the power points as designed by James from the Streamline company. It was not an easy job since they had to cut through the concrete wall so as to fit the pipes that electrical wires will pass through. By four o’clock they had finished the job and it was well done. Here some pictures of them working.
On Gichuru and his team also did a good job in constructing where the tank and the filters will be kept. The following are their pictures working.
We are hoping that the project will have been completed by early March. Thank you for your support.
