Julius & Dora Children’s Centre, Maseno, Kenya Newsletter 17, Sept 2019

Written by Flossie (Floice) Adoyo, co-ordinator and ‘Mum’ of the Children’s Centre I said in my last newsletter that we were planning to move the children from a private school to the local Government-run school, Ebulako Primary School.
