Ken Ariri –founder of Hill Breeze Orphan Support School (on the right in the photo with me in it). Ken welcomed me with great enthusiasm to the school, involved me in all activities, introduced me to the local community (and his extended family) and ensured that my visit was both enjoyable and successful.
Joseph Ouko – co-founderof Hill Breeze school and teacher at Nyabola Girls Secondary School (on the left in the photo with me in it). Joseph introduced me to the pupils and staff at his school and offered (as an alternative option) his house as my accommodation, which was very kind.
Samuel Omoro –Head Teacher (on the left in the second photo). Samuel helped me to settle into the school, and was great company during the evenings when we all shared dinner together.
Lorenza Ochieng –volunteer teacher at Hill Breeze (in the middle in the second photo). Lorenza worked really hard; aside from teaching, she prepared delicious meals for Ken, Samuel, herself and myself. She also did my laundry.
Non of the staff get a formal salary, they may get a small sum for expenses of 2,000 KSh (£13) if funds allow. They do this work out of the goodness of their heart, and to gain experience until they can find permanent employment.
