Taken in Nakuru, Kenya.

Our Mission Team were performing a drama at the time this photo was taken. We were visiting a school in Nakuru. Many of these children were orphans. The conditions at this school were extremely poor. Our goal was to share Gods Word and bring some light to such dark times.

I thought I would add a little here…

This is actually a photo of a girl. Some have mistakenly thought it was a boy. I did the same when I first arrived in Kenya, dont feel bad. What I learned is that hair is kept short to better manage lice.

Many of these children are very dirty and do not appear to clean up that often. Even when they do the water is full of contaminents and such. In the slums the water is even worse. © Scott Denny 2007
