From Watamu Treehouse to Happy House

A party of lovely people from New York holidaying in Watamu took the time to come to see us.
They are staying at the beautiful Watamu Treehouse, a luxury destination for holidays or retreats.
The group listened intently as Mama told them the story of her road to the Happy House.
A guided tour followed, with chief guide,Papa Dave, showing them around. 
Just as they were finishing their tour, the kids were arriving home from school and gathered in the banda to treat our guests to a welcome song. 
And once they start singing it's difficult to stop them, much to the delight of their audience who were thrilled to delighted by such a happy, singing family!
The group all practice Yoga, one of their main reasons for visiting WatamuTreehouse, and the children had a wonderful time doing some Yoga exercises, dancing and singing ancient songs.
Watamu Treehouse (www.treehouse.co.ke) is rated as one of the best hotels in Kenya by the Telegraph and is one of Kenya Airways' Msafiri Magazine's "100 Most Unforgettable Experiences" globally.
Situated on one of the most picturesque stretches of Watamu beach. and located right opposite the Coral Gardens of the Marine Park,  Treehouse has no large hotels nearby - only private residences. 
Built high in the trees, its unique architecture affords a 360 degree panorama of the Indian Ocean coastline on one side and native forest on the other.
You can book a room or two in Treehouse bed+breakfast, half board or fullboard, or larger groups can rent a whole tower or the whole house on a self-catering (or catered) basis, or go for a retreat. 
Guests are well taken care of by the friendly, professional and experienced Watamu Treehouse Team.
Thank you to Paul the team at Treehouse and their visitors for spending time with our children.


In a world where computer technolgy dominates our lives, it is viatal that our Happy
House kids have the skills to use it.
We need to buy five new computers and  to buy three CPUs to refurbish existing ones to ensure our school's dedicated computer room has enough machines for each child when lessons take place there.
At the moment they are having to share, which causes delays.
The total cost of buying what we need is £3,500.
