We recently purchased a 29 passenger bus. Previously, we relied on our house mothers or Kenya-based board members to provide transportation to boarding schools, doctor appointments, etc. in their personal vehicles. As you can imagine, it was challenging to coordinate with as many children that we have in our care. Now, all of our children can be taken to their separate boarding schools on the same day, saving a lot of time.
One thing to note about the bus buying market in Kenya is that there aren’t many options to choose from because it’s quite costly to have buses imported to the country. We feel that it was truly a miracle that we were able to find a bus in such good condition within our budget.
