Kenya: New Year, New Approach at Ondati


It’s a new approach for a new year at Ondati Secondary in Kenya, as the school looks to push on and improve the businesses on site.

With the newly formed ‘Beauty Salon Business Club’, the ‘Volunteer Friendship Club’ and a good harvest of nearly ripe pineapples, means we are witnessing much more enthusiasm toward our enterprises this year.
