Project Report | Apr 6, 2021
A Special Update from our School

By Tyrone Bennett | CEO / President

Dear our very special supporters! 

Life in Mombasa has been tough! As the global pandemic slowly comes under control schools in Kenya are now back and your donations have been hard at work helping us keep the doors open. We are still very much hoping to build a new sustainable school in 2021 that will help us remove ongoing costs and ensure we can be long term sustainable without the worry of guessing fundraising and donations. If you have not already seen our micro project then please do check it out here and if you can share with your special network of friends and family to help us reach out target to lay the first bricks of our new school!

Currently we reply on donations to ensure the school can remain open but this gets tougher and touger each month and although we have exciting new ways with our new school to remove many costs, today we are struggling. 

In March 2021 we brought in 30,388Ksh in donations, we also had motorbikes donated to the school which we hire out to the community and the profit of this goes into our school, in March we raised a total income of 42,300Khs and then for those that are able to pay school fees we took in 76,450Khs in March. This is a total income of 149,138Khs ($1,374).

In March we had to pay out 11,820Khs to keep the motorbikes project running, 50,000Khs rent for our school to the landlord, 29,940Khs in learning materials and school expenses, 154,000 in staffing salaries and KCPE (exam fees) of 17,060. To keep the doors open in March it cost us 262,820Khs $2,421. The School also runs a feeding project for students and March meals was funded through a local donation. 

In March our school overspent by 113,682Khs which is around $1,100 and now we need to fundraise and appeal to donors to help us fundraise this shortfall while we also prepare for covering the costs to run in April. 

As a special donor and supporter of our project we kindly request you help us raise awareness and share our story while we try to look for monthly donors to help us continue to run. 

Thank you,

 

Brian (Headteacher), Ty, Chelsea, Shayle, Ash, Karla, Heidi, Phil and Senthan (Action Change Team)
