This week we are having the California Team over from the USA.
They are painting some dormitory rooms and set a new quality standard for us!
Meanwhile our boys are continuing to finish the outside of the boys dorm…
and also the staff houses are being completed…
Meanwhile we are also working on the plastering of the school-block as you can see above and also the work on the security office is ongoing.All together a LOT of work that is going on!
We thank God who is sustaining all this and of coarse also YOU who is making the donations that make us able to continue the work.
Thank you very much!

This week the work goes on at the Staff Quarters. We are building the last of 3 blocks of simple, small rooms. Each holds just one bed and a chair, just enough for one person to sleep.
And we have also started the work on the GateKeepersOffice:
And the work on the 2nd block of the primary school is nearing completion…
And at this time we have Piet & Rianne Zeldenrust at work on the teeth of the children and staff. Piet is a practicing dentist in Hoofddorp, The Netherlands. His daughter Rianne is a dental student. Besides that Piet is the husband to our chaiman in Holland, he comes at least once a year to help the children of Kimbilio Children’s Village with some simple equipment he brought over from Holland.

Bit by bit a LOT of work has just continued eventhough we have not reported much from week to week.
The small door on top leads to the underground generator bunker. We have started on the installation of our 1st of two small diesel generators. Each should generate 6KVA and at a later time each will be used to charge the batteries that power the inverter. The inverter is used because the power-supply in East Africa is very unreliable. (to say the least)
The road you see here on the left is an internal road that will lead from the dormitories via Jacobs House to the staff quarters back to the behind gate, jointing the internal road again. This is making the staff quarters accessible to the lorry and other vehicles as we are now seriously beginning to work on staff housing there.
As you can see below, we have added some more rooms at what we used to call “Aggrey’s place” .
And we are adding some 4 more rooms to it as we need them badly with the growing of the team.
In the meantime, we have received 3 volunteers at the children’s village.
They are (from left to right) Will Gayle (from the USA), Magnus Bieneck (Germany), Christiane
Carrle (also from Germany).
Will is here till the end of the year and both untill April 2013.
I am sure they will find lots of useful things to do around the children’s village.
And finally the work on our phase two of the primary school is moving ahead steadily. The men are now preparing the hollow bricks (maxpans) that form the ceilling and support layer for the next floor. I expect they will still be busy for a week before the concrete will be casted on top.

30 Jun 2012, Week 26 (wk 9 of proj PS1b)
The 2nd part of our school-building is taking shape and Grace checks out where her office will be.
And when the builders are not all able to work at the school, some continue to work on the dining-room. Also the work on the fabrication of cement products like the louvers and pavement bricks continue…

Rien de Braal, a long time trusted friend and brother of the Kimbilio Family, has died this day.
You can find many pictures of Rien on this site as he has been our friend even before Kimilio land was bought.
We know him as a person with a Heart For Children.
He will be greatly missed by his Kimbilio Family!
Rien has left behind his two sisters in Holland.

But the work on our school building has also progressed nicely. The workers are now setting and casting about 4 columns per day.
In the meantime, the metal-fabricators are preparing the windows to be fitted in the school.

At the end of the day the complete floor was ready.

Give it another 2 weeks and the compound will be completely secured.
