An extra 45 children living around Neema Nguuni can now start school thanks to the efforts of our fantastic sponsors.

New extension to schoolWe’ve employed another teacher and built a new classroom, so a total of 90 children are getting a great start in life.

As Jim says: “this is what the community asked for” – planning for the new class started after we got the results of our census run in 2011. This showed that there were many children in the surrounding area waiting to start school.

It’s an extra commitment for the trust, but one we felt more confident to make following fundraising by staff from Plumbs Furnishings, matched by the company.

As well as the capital cost of over £1,800 to build the classroom, our support for the new teacher’s salary means we need to provide an additional 7,000 Kenyan shillings – over £50 – every month. Could you help us?
