Three years ago a promise was made. Cedric Singleton promised to return to Kibera, the second largest slum in Africa, to build a kitchen that would feed 150 children one meal per day.
Upon arrival to Kibera this May, there was a $5,600 budget to build a single kitchen. The sum total of $5,600 translates to 450,000 shillings. Within the nine days that Village One, HuMissions and OccupyLove have been in Kibera we constructed a two-story building that holds a cafeteria, dorm, AND classroom. All of this is in addition to the initial kitchen endeavor!
Can’t believe it?! It’s true. -In fact, they thought the building would only be one story at 10 feet by 20 feet. The complete building is a two-story 16’x40’ structure made of aluminum and wood. The classroom is upstairs, with a cafeteria downstairs, and a storage facility above the kitchen.
At last contact, Cedric said, “It rained really hard for about ten minutes, but we’re waiting for supplies to hopefully finish the job today.” Wow! -It was 5 p.m. in Kibera, at the time.
There will be another update soon. For now, view photos from the last nine days:::

Thanks to donations made from around the world, Kitchen in Kibera has been a TOTAL success!!!
It doesn’t take much to make a difference. We thank you so much for supporting our humble village. Just as there is no ‘I’ in Team, there is only one world, One Village. Village One.
In the Deepest of Gratitude,
