Sponser By Docter Ann Gloage

Mashimoni is one of the schools in slums and the last three years when i was in class four Mashimoni has classrooms made of mad and the floor was not cemented, their was no water to drink and our school looked like a desert, dining halls were not there and there was no enough stationeries in our classrooms and the blackboard had crack and it looked like tortoise shed and no toilets. But God sent a savior all the way from Scotland to Kibera in Mashimoni and she was called Docter Ann Gloage who is now sponsering Mashiomoni and she is now doing a very good job to mashimoni and even giving us things that we never even taught of, she is also a sponser to other schools in Kenya and she also offers the needs to the poor and orphans and she dosent choose who you are whether black or white, short or tall, fat or slim for her if you ask she will give it to you. Docter Ann build for us classroom which are cemented and gave us stationeries and food which is plenty for all of us and she bought tanks and several taps which never miss water when dry or not for her she makes sure we have everything she built for us toilets and fenced our school, she planted trees and grass and built gabions to avoid soil erosion and for now we have no problems and gave us free uniforms and bags for carrying our books to school.
