Maths teacher travel to Kenya

Sheree Murphy, Adrienne Brosnan and Emma Cronin are three Math’s teachers in St.Brigid’s Presentation Killarney who travelled to Kenya in June. These teachers volunteered with the Kenya Education Project. Founded in 2003, the Kenya Education Project is based in the slum village of Embulbul, 25km south of Nairobi, where there are many homes without running water or electricity and very poor sanitation. We are very proud of our teachers for their kindness in volunteering. Below are some photos taken from their stay.
