The Turkana Teacher Resource Centre, known locally as the “Anna Nanjala Education Centre” is now finished. This building is the Teacher Resource Centre for the Diocese of Lodwar. It houses a library, offices and a common room. The library has been stocked with books, each of which has the name of one of our sponsors written inside the front cover. This has all cost €45,000 and took some ten months to complete.
