July 2013 Service Project

Project Dates: July 25 – August 5 2013

Building on the momentum generated by our March 2012 service project, we led a group of students from Albuquerque’s University of New Mexico and DATA Charter High School to Kiima Kimwe to continue work on the region’s health clinic and celebrate its unofficial opening ceremony.

Our work included assisting with the expansion the site’s hygiene facilities and implementing a clean water system to meet the Machakos County Ministry of Health requirements for the commissioning of the clinic.

In addition, we met with the Mayor of Machakos Town, members of the District Health Authority, and the Governor of Machakos County to discuss how Other Paths can participate in broader activities in the region.
