Help From The Rock – How Jersey Changed a Village
In 2006 Dave and Betty Ellis were the leaders of a JOA Work Project to the village of Nyalkinyi in Western Kenya. During the project they were taken to the village of Pala. The village at that time was in a poor state, the only access was via a rough track too narrow in places for the land rover so they had to go cross country. In the village there was no health care, no secondary school, no clean water, no electricity and only a few run down huts forming the primary school.
Thanks to the support of JOA, Rotary International, All Saints Church, HFTR Committee members and of course the great Jersey public, Pala has now been provided with a new primary school, a secondary school, a health Centre and a borehole.
