April 26th 2020 was the date that St Hilda’s Anglican church was meant to be hosting 11 Kenyan teachers on the return portion of a Rotary exchange led by Sechelt Rotary Club. That of course had to be cancelled due to COVID 19.
We were very excited to be joined on Zoom, following our service, by James Musyoka, the Executive Director of Kenya Connect in Wamunyu, Kenya. James gave a presentation on the work that they do in the schools, the teacher training exchange that saw some BC teachers spending time in Wamunyu in April 2019, and the effect of the Coronavirus in their area. Thanks to James, we saw slides from Kenya and had time for discussion. This further connected us to the project that we are so passionate about supporting each year through a scholarship fund for Secondary School students. Thank you James Musyoka!
