Today marked the inauguration of several things at Starehe. It was their first Sports Day, after Safaricom handed over sports fields and a running track to the school. It was also the groundbreaking ceremony for the library, where construction will now begin on what we know will be our best library yet.

There to help us with the groundbreaking, and also to hand over 150 books, as we always do at the beginning of all of our library projects, were our partners in the promotion of reading, Sauti Sol. Ever the library enthusiasts, and great proponents of the KEY Library Program, they also gave the girls a treat with a performance, including my favorite song, Soma Kijana.
