Back to school for 2020

Children returned to our partner schools at the start of January for the new school year after the long Christmas break.

Some returned to find further improved learning environments after work we were able to undertake during the holidays but all returned to classrooms with teachers and the guarantee of a daily lunchtime meal for another year thanks to our continued support of a lunch programme and commitment to provide funding for the salaries of at least 17 additional teachers.

Our extensive, on-going project to rebuild our eighth partner school at Mkamenyi Primary will be our focus this year and for much of 2021 but simultaneously we will continue to invest heavily in our existing network of partner schools to further improve the learning environment for the thousands of disadvantaged children they serve.

We have plans to construct at least two dining halls (plus a new kitchen alongside one of them) and new toilets (as well as incinerators for disposal of sanitary pads) at a number of schools this year, and to upgrade a couple of playground spaces.

We also hope this might also be the year when we finally launch a pilot of a school kitchen garden/farming project as we explore ways our partner schools can become more self-sufficient and generate other streams of income.

We look forward to bringing you more updates as the year unfolds over the months to come!
