Prepping for the big screening
It's the second day in Kenya, and I was off to visit Kimani. He's been
transferred to a great secondary school called Corner Brook, which is owned
by one of the HBEF board members. He looks the same! A little bigger, but
he's definitely the same sweet kid (actually a full on teenager now). It was a
Saturday at an all boys school. Everyone was hanging out in the cafeteria,
blasting Jay-Z and Lil' Wayne. Kimani says the kids are nice, but (and I
quote) "sometimes it can be very distracting to be a teenager." He still has
a way with words.
The next stop was the village, which hasn't changed at all. I'm putting
together a village screening of the film. We found the "theatre."
Gathirimu Girls School has donated their school hall for the event. Pink Roses Academy
has donated a video projector. And the best part is the coordinator from
HBEF is going to donate all of his used, empty feed bags. We're going to
have them sewn together and painted white to make a big screen. Excellent!
