Graduation ceremony

Project featured on ICN website

On 3 December, Feast of St Francis Xavier, Fr Joseph Githinji from the Missionary Community of St Paul the Apostle in Turkana, northwest Kenya wrote:

Today we celebrated the 14th Graduation of ‘Furrows in the Desert’ in Lobur Catholic Mission. The celebration was a colourful one and took place in the dinning room of Saint Irine Mother and Child Centre, just at the entrance of the Mission.

The students, now farmers, could not hide the joy after completing their training course. They were all awarded certificates because of their good and hard work, after completing six months, doing both class and field or practical farming studies. During the six months they have been able to eat from the produce they planted while learning.
