On the 3rd of February 2015, Angela Kabari and I took the 8.00 am Easy Coach Bungoma bound bus. The journey to get to the Bungoma Easy Coach offices took 8 hours. The ride was uneventful with 2 stops: one in Nakuru town and the other in Eldoret town. By the time we got to Bungoma we were quite tired but pleased to finally have reached.

In December 2014, the Ford Foundation awarded School Series a small grant to run our Secondary School Programme in various underprivileged high schools in Nairobi.

Hey everyone!

I am not a blogger and this is the first one I am doing ever in my 20 something years of being on this our good earth!

Today we went to Alliance Girls courtesy of Catherine Wanjiru active Alumnus of the school.

When we drove in to the grounds – and I am not marketing for the school in any way- I was impressed by how clean it was and well taken care of. Add a comment
