January Update - Athi School

HATW volunteers on placement with Athi school have now returned, with positive feedback on their experiences working with the children and in the school, and the warmth of their welcome. A new year has started, but many of last year’s issues still remain to be resolved.


One fundraising focus which the volunteers have set themselves as a target is to finance the installation of an electricity supply to the school dormitory and dining hall – can you help them to achieve this target? You can donate below

 

The local disability centre, in the nearby town of Maua, would like to initiate a 2 year project with partners to improve the dignity, independence and mobility of disabled people in the area, by providing suitable wheelchairs. Physically disabled children at the school in Athi would be some of those who would benefit from the scheme. You can help with a donation towards the cost of a locally made and easily reparable wheelchair for a disabled child at Athi school. Each £130 raised would finance a wheelchair. Donate below towards raising wheelchair funds.

 

Not everyone can spare the time to visit Athi school children, to bring specialist expertise or  to help in the school. There is something life-changing that you can do, however – make a donation towards helping achieve their project targets. Reach out and give a hand…and make a lasting difference.
