We have come a long way in the last year with both the construction and program development for the centre.
In the summer of 2011, six McGill Interns and Volunteers worked with the Vision Sisters Working Sisters. They were involved in the planning and implementation phase of the construction of the WICC and taught basic computer classes on donated computers. Even from Canada, the interns remain very involved. Student projects were completed to inform the program development for the Centre.
In December 2011, a Masters student from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, volunteered with the Vision Sisters Working Sisters. Together, they elaborated on program development and the WICC constitution. In addition, with a background in rape crisis counselling, Arti taught crisis counselling workshops. She aims to return to complete her thesis work in March.
McGill University Canadian Field Studies in Africa students are currently in Kenya and intend to visit the site. The hope is that they will continue to engage as volunteers or official interns upon completion of their field studies program. We would like to once again thank KMA Architects for their significant contribution to this project!
