All of our fundraising this year is going directly towards the construction of a dormitory for Belgrove Primary School, which provides education for children living in extremely remote areas of Kajiado South in rural Kenya. The school provides an excellent standard of primary education and provides three meals a day for all children which they would not normally receive at home.
Many of these children must still travel extremely long journeys of over 16km a day to attend, across terrain that is both prone to flooding and also wildlife hazards. This is a major issue for the school, evidenced by the fact that 67 children dropped out completely last year as a result of these unsustainable travel distances. In order for this school to be able to fully support all the children living in remote areas, there is a need for accommodation.
We have raised £8156 of our £8000 goal!
Thank you to everyone for your generous contributions. Construction will begin next year - check back for photos!
