Narrative Road to Kesisini

by Vincent Makau- staff nurse at the 
A road dusty and bumpy leads here
In this African atmosphere,
In a culture woven with skillful hands
Of the Kamba living this arid lands.

Weaves of sisal strings, the twist,
The joy it always brings, so sweet. 
A prickly plant with green leaves
That give string for these weaves.

These strong weaves that hold society,
Despite the tough cuts made by poverty.
Sisal baskets that sort for small funds
For a clinic, woven by these Kamba hands.

Services for the ailing and the sick every
day of the week, being strong for the weak.
This big heart woven with sisal
Beats not for one,but for all.





Gladys is 20 years old, she wants to be a teacher. her family has no money to send her to college so she stays at the clinic and follows the nurses around helping them. She is an interpreter and worked with us on creating this film.
