Make mandazi

Kenya is more than twice the size of Britain and there are about 52 million people living there. It’s on the equator, so it doesn’t have a summer and winter like we do in the UK. Instead, they have rainy seasons and dry seasons. 

Kenya is a diverse country. There are many different landscapes like mountains, savannah, lakes, forests and deserts. Lots of people live in big cities too, like Nairobi, the capital city. But some people live in very remote places, where it can be hard to access water, food, medicine and healthcare. Often, the people living in these areas have never heard about Jesus before either. 

Mandazi is a form of fried bread that originated on the Swahili Coast. They are a bit like donuts and are normally eaten with tea (chai) or coffee.
