At long last Mustard Seed Project have been able to purchase the desperately needed land in this overcrowded community. Our school is now full to bursting and has a long waiting list. Our children look healthy thanks to the feeding programme provided by the Herrod Foundation and are learning well. They are attaining well ahead of their peers at neighbouring schools and most are ahead of national expectations. It's such a joy to behold.

This achievement is largely due to our teachers of course but we have also had some excellent volunteers working on the project from the UK and from Finland. Their efforts have been very much appreciated by both the staff and the children.

We plan to build a primary school for 300 plus children from ages 3 to 14 and at last we are on our way. Building our own school will help ensure sustainability of the project as there will then be no rent to pay. Our school already has a reputation for being the best school in Mgongeni but we shall only be satisfied when it is considered the best school in Mombasa. Good education should not depend upon the ability of parents to pay. It should be a right.

So all we need to do now is raise the funds. A big thank you to those of you who have already given. You have helped to make such a difference.
