Hi, my wife and I are going to spend about a month at an orphanage on the outskirts of Nairobi, i guess helping in any way we can with school work, building/infrastructure improvements etc. Its an Orphanage we visited quickly with a tour a few years back and had always wanted to return to, it seemed well run and the kids well looked after. We will be asking for small donations from friends to take and put towards one of their projects (chicken farm for instance). We would also like to buy a few personal effects for the kids and would like some ideas on what things are generally most needed/useful (ie, shoes,underwear, school items, warm jumpers etc), of course we hope to get an idea once we are there but would like to arrive with something initially.
Any tips on ways to liven up the taste of Ugali also appreciated as neither of us are big fans, but expect to eat the same as the kids.
