SStS, a group of thoughtful, hardworking, globally-aware high school students, made their first service trip to IPI in Meru, Kenya in June 2009 and have returned every summer. They provide funding and part of the labor for a variety of projects for the Amani Home. Working alongside locals, they built goat pens, chicken coops, rabbit pens, and a greenhouse. They completed a water project and laid an irrigation system on 2 acres of IPI’s farmland, which is providing food for the Amani Home during the current drought.
