Mustard Seed is providing quality education for 300 poor children in a deprived area of Mombasa. In January 2021, after years of hard work, our new school building was completed. All 300 children and the staff are together in one building at last. We are saving £5,000 a year in rent. The school, Miche Bora Primary School, is a source of great pride in the community. Parents are very keen to enrol their children. It also means that we now have the opportunity to hire out our building outside school hours and also have a library. However the school has no outdoor space. There is no land next to the school but land is available close by which we wish to purchase. As well as providing much needed play space it will be a facility for outdoor games and PE. Our children range in age from 3 to 14 and all of them will benefit from the opportunities it will give them from free play to serious sport. It is also likely to provide many opportunities for the extension of school events in the future.
