It was pomp and colour, dance and ululations during the official opening of the new building which will serve as an extension of the clinic and Centre meeting rooms. The event was graced by Niall Mellon the founder of Niall Mellon Educate organization Kenya an affiliate of Niall Mellon Township Trust -Ireland and over 25 Irish volunteers who worked tirelessly towards fundraising for the project. The opening involved cutting of the ribbon, unveiling of the plaque and a tour of the rooms.
Ever since it was built, the building has captured the attention of young and old alike, the locals as well as the foreigner in equal measure. It is a magnificent beauty at the heart of Mukuru Kwa Ruben slum. Its beauty is manifested both inside and outside and has a carefully thought through interior decor that creates an ambiance of peace, tranquility as well as power.
The building comes in handy because the clinic is overly crowded and it will help decongest the old clinic as well as ensuring speedy and quality service provision. Initially the Centre meetings were held at the library and this inconvenienced the pupils who wanted private studies and also there was too much noise when the pupils were at break. The meeting rooms in the new building are strategically located at the first floor of the building, are well furnished and spacious as well.
The visitors were treated to songs and dances by our pupils and were actively engaged to the tunes of Irish songs and a Kamba dance and drum beats by the gymnastics group. It is an event that will surely go to our history books and forever engraved in our memory lanes. Niall Mellon educate is also funding 24 classrooms which are under construction.
