Literacy Boxes are on their way.

Thanks to the amazing efforts of Ian Parker and the Team at the Rotary Club of Roborough the 3 Literacy Boxes provided by Locks Heath Rotary club are on their way to Kenya.

Ian has worked with the wonderful Kris Shah from AMBA FORWARDING London and between them they will oversee the safe passage of these boxes straight to Phoebe’s family.

If you need anything sent any where then Kris Shah is the person to do this for you. Thanks Ian and team and  thanks Kris its people like you that make this world a better place.

Rain Causes Havoc with School Toilets

Kisumu has had a very wet season and this has given Phoebe and her family many problems to deal with.

The long drop toilets have taken on ground water and filled up. This means the children cannot use them until the levels subside. When they over flow they go onto the school yard. The yard is already very muddy from the continuous down pours. Phoebe is looking to replace these toilets with a new system of 5 cess-pit toilets. This will create a much more hygienic and permanent solution to the schools toilet problems. As you can see the children are still smiling and they have started the new school year with joy and enthusiasm.

Could you help fund this project and help clear the yard so that it is safe for the children Phoebe is helping .

If you can please contact me through this sight, you may be looking for a charity to fund raise with, please think of Phoebe’s Family
