After a night of torrential rain and winds, the force of which threw our showers to the ground, we all woke up a little disgruntled.
The rain managed to haunt us throughout the morning, as we had to halt work ad a result, although this made us feel even more at home surrounded by seemingly British weather.
However, we didn't let the weather dampen our spirits, with our site foreman Peter directing us through more brick lating and sanding of the walls of the girls toilets to then be painted.
With our medic Dr Islan commanding us to shout 'ENERGY!' every 15 minutes we powered through, as well as an ensuing game of assassin keeping everyone alert.
As we stopped for another break the dinner team arrived in time for some mandazis, bringing mangos, tomatoes, eggs and cloth from the market.
After getting some more work done and having some delicious lunch, Julian, the founder of LTT, spoke to us about how the charity came about and the importance of working with communities to help them become self-sustaining.
The day was rounded off with a walk around Gendi, seeing where the community lives. On our return to the school, the girls played netball and the boys played football with the 150 children, and Dylan scores a 'banging' goal. The children are now starting to remember our names, and we definitely feel at home.
