"Thank you to Lamu island for welcoming us foreigners (or musungus as you call us in Swajili)"

If there´s a place that connects the past and the present, it´s the Swajili coast in the island of Lamu, Kenya. Lamu is a place free of traffic and noise contamination and the only source of transportation are boats and donkeys. 12 of our participants travelled to this island to work 21 days in the areas of education, art and recycling.  

This project is developed in a school completely built with bottles and recycled material, where the participants have been included in the summer camp that the school offers to 35 local children. They have participated in teaching English, leading sport, musical and artistic activities. They have provided support in the kitchen and garden of the school and in the rebuilding and beautification of the school with recycled materials.

“Thank you to Lamu island for welcoming us foreigners (or musungus as you call us in Swajili). You are full of kindness, giant smiles and jambos (hello in Swajili), which was said a thousand times through the labyrinthine alleys that make up Lamu town,” said Covadonga, a microproject participant.
