Education

The charity continues its links (via CEPARD) with a number of primary schools in the Alara area. Primary education is free in Kenya, however fees are charged for secondary education. Our goal is to improve access to both primary and secondary education for all children in the area.

School Links

We live in an increasingly global world and it is important that all children have an understanding of other countries and communities. We provide schools in the UK with partner schools in the Alara area. Schools in the UK and Kenya will have the opportunity to exchange news, letters and photographs. For UK schools, the link can have direct benefits in teaching topics such as RRR, geography and cultural diversity.

The link also helps in gaining the British Council International Schools Award.

Want to Help?

Stationary and admin costs are not very exciting but no charity project can run without them. We currently spend about £70 per month in Kenya on electricity, phone calls, transport to and from projects, paper and printer ink. Any help is greatly appreciated.
