Recently a group of Indigenous children from remote communities were invited to try their hand at painting donated surfboards in the Roper Gulf Shire and then have a go at stand up paddling for the first time, Stand up paddling is a great alternative on the clear croc free inland waters! Locally renowned artist, Wesley Willaker, conceived different water designs involving the children to add these to the donated boards. These display only boards will be auctioned off soon, watch this site for details.

Sports day at the Axilium School

Sports day at the school is a day when the learning stops and the competition begins! When I hear the words Sports Day I think of when I was little and we would all get a break from school to go and play games and maybe win a prize at the end of the day. Sports Day at Axilium School is very different. The students are broken up into teams: Emerald, Safire, Diamond and Ruby. At the beginning of the day each team are separated into perfectly straight lines and begin to march as one around the school grounds. The students, who are usually running, playing and fooling around were now marching so straight and pristinely you would think you were performing for the royal army itself. The school even has its own torch to light at the beginning of the ceremony. After the marching there were some speeches from Sister Annie, Mother Superior and a guest speaker who came to bless the games. And then it was GVI’s turn. The night before sports day GVI Staff and Volunteers put together a cheer for the school, we rehearsed it perfectly but when we stood in front of an army of 500 students we all froze but thankfully one of the volunteers, Daria, sang an amazing version of “Lean on me” and everyone cheered! After that, the games really began! There was long jump, sprint, three legged race and a tug of war to finish the day off. While many of the games were taking place volunteers and local teachers served lemonade to the children.

Once all the races had been completed the winners were announced. Each winner stood up on the podium to receive a bronze, silver or gold crown. At the end of the day everyone was exhausted but we could tell the teachers and students had had a wonderful Sports Day.

Thank you to all of supporters for helping to make events like this possible for these children.

Donations help Children earn qualifications

With thanks to generous donations to the GVI Charitable Trust children at the Olives Rehabilitation Centre in Mombassa, Kenya will be able to earn the KCPE (Kenyan Certificate in Primary Education) for the first time.

Staff and community members are hard at work building new classrooms which will house children as they progress through to Standard 8 to earn their KCPE. Donations have also helped build a temporary kitchen to keep the children well fed, providing a balanced diet and helping the children concentrate in school.

The KCPE is necessarily for even the lowest skilled jobs in Kenya, now children at Olives will no longer have this barrier working against them.
