Saving a small primary school in rural Western Kenya from closure:
Green Olive Trust UK provides educational opportunities for orphans and other
disadvantaged children in Western Kenya, mostly by supporting individual students to study at High School and University. Recently the charity heard that the Musingu Quaker Primary School was at risk of closure unless major renovations were carried out urgently to improve the very dilapidated buildings. The school provides basic education for over 270 of the most marginalized girls and boys in the area; orphans, the rural equivalent of ‘street kids’ and children of impoverished widows. A grant of £6000 from Kitchen Table Charities Trust is funding the rebuilding and equipping of the classrooms, the toilet block, kitchen and dining areas and the exercise ground. Work will be carried out by local tradespeople, and school leavers will be trained in building and carpentry so they will also be gaining skills to use in the future. So £6000 is benefitting many in the Musingu community; primary school pupils, school leavers, adults in an area of high unemployment, and future generations of school children. A big thank you to Kitchen Table Charities Trust.
