A group of north-east volunteers have built four homes in six days for Kenyan families in need of shelter.
The team of 29 volunteers included 19 people from Aberdeen, along with others from Australia, Brazil and Israel.
The trip was organised by Aberdeen charity the Gathimba Edwards Foundation – which was founded by athletes Myles Edwards and Gideon Gathimba in 2014.
Inspired by a visit to the Pavillion Village children’s home in Kenya, they began to support children in education, providing shelter and clothing, as well as support to their families.
Each year a group visits the country on two annual housebuilding trips.
This time participants travelled to Iten, a town which is 2,400 metres above sea level and known as the “home of champions” due to its athletic success.
Four properties were built across the six days as the volunteers finished two days ahead of schedule.
Employees from Bancon Homes and Stewart Milne Timber Systems also joined the charity on the excursion.
Darren Cocker, site manager at Bancon Homes’ Eden at Maidencraig development, said: “It’s amazing to see a team of volunteers become housebuilders in less than a week.”
Kevin Farley of Stewart Milne was one of the volunteers who joined the trip.
He said: “I had a brilliant time in Kenya the last two weeks.
“I met some friends for life and changed the lives of four families.
“Seeing their smiles was better than any wage I’ve ever had.
“I owe thanks to everyone that made my trip amazing. I’ll be back again I’m sure.”
Gathimba Edwards founder Myles Edwards said: “We’re incredibly proud and grateful to all the volunteers from Kenya and abroad for transforming the lives of these four families.
“Living in the forest or by the roadside is now a thing of the past thanks to them.
“The team came together in a special way and their efforts will last a lifetime.
“The way that Stewart Milne Timber Systems and Bancon Homes worked together in the planning and execution of the project was also very inspiring.”
The families that have received new housing will also be supported with a piece of land, which will allow them to grow food, both for consumption and sale.
There will be another homebuilding trip next year, which will run from October 12 to October 25.
Gathimba Edwards also run a spring trip called Kenya 22.
It allows participants to take part in a number of different experiences, including climbing Mount Kenya, visiting an elephant orphanage, running a 5k or 10k race, meeting famous international athletes and visiting the families that have been supported.
