What is happening?
A Gardening Birthday
in January, we officially celebrated Effatha Home's 13th Birthday as we welcomed our core members back to work.
We used the opportunity to officially open our Urban Vertical Garden where we have planted over 4,032 seedlings of various vegetables. This is one of the projects that have been enabled by the Stretching Our Limits - Up Mt. Kenya by Wheelchair Campaign in 2019.
L'Arche Family Day
From Kenya to New Zealand, Slovenia to Syria, France to Canada, we connected, enjoyed learning art from around the world and made origami from Japan, drew flowers from Ukraine and day of the dead skulls from Mexico. We sang, danced, prayed, and shared stories virtually, in diverse languages, to celebrate our L'Arche family!
Our Improved Bakery
Our bakery workshop is now back in full operation and in a big way with the new equipment acquired from our last year's Mt. Kenya Climb fundraising campaign. We can now comfortably make biscuits, tea buns, rock buns, samosas, mandazis, sausages, pizza name it... A big Thank You to all those who contributed last year!
