Twiga Trek fundraising for Kenya Kesho School for Girls

They came and they conquered!

The Kenya Kesho Trust on Sunday held the really exciting Twiga Trek Cycle Challenge at Nguuni Nature Sanctuary, in order to raise funds towards the construction of The Kenya Kesho School for Girls, a primary school for girls from disadvantaged families in Kwale County.

Very early Sunday morning; Nguuni Nature Sanctuary; the organizers were there early, and lots of volunteers were there too – we need more volunteers for next year.

We had asked all parents to be there by 7.30 am with their young competitors. It was so exciting. There was a palpable energy in the air; all the kids revved up with motivation and anticipation. What was to come? Who would be the fastest? Who had the best names for their teams? Which school had the most entrants? Who was making the most noise? So many questions and we all had to wait until 9.00!!

Everyone got a Twiga Trek T shirt in a bright green colour. We also got a bright green cap with Twiga Trek logo on the front, sponsored by Sachil Gudka of Graphic Designs Nairobi. Come on! Come on! Numbers for the bicycle, time cards to be presented and stamped at the controls, water, bananas – donated by Khosla Farm at Kikambala and still we were not to go! How slowly can time go when all we want to do is get on our way and show everyone how good we are!
