Challenge Africa

The first few days of SCC’s Challenge Africa have flown by and along with “sunburn” and “it’s so hot” one of the most commonly repeated phrases so far is how much the trip has been “a humbling experience”.  Away from the tourist trails and deep into the real world of Kenya, the five staff members from SCC (Specialist Computer Centres) have been delving into local communities to see the projects that are run by CO2balance, and which SCC have been supporting for over the past four years now.  New experiences included a delicious traditional Kenya meal made by a local family, cooked on one of our Improved Cook Stoves.

The experience is very much humbling, seeing what little they have and how happy they are certainly puts any problems that we have back in the UK very much into perspective.  Next up is a trip to the Shikaadabu Primary School to see the fruits of the Challenge Africa Team’s funding raising campaign.  They are getting ready for more humbling, more heat and probably some sunburn!
