LEARNING CHANGES LIVES- our new campaign

Senior Pupils start a new term

The children hold up their bags and boxes

At Phoebe’s Family we believe all children have the right to an education, especially if it breaks the cycle of poverty. We support Bishop Phoebe Onyango with her mission to offer education to as many children as possible in the Kisumu and Bondo areas of Kenya.

Everything is becoming more bureaucratic and expensive and we need an injection of money to up-date our senior school, buy equipment for the nursery and  junior schools and finish the Technical Academy. So today we are launching our new campaign

“LEARNING CHANGES LIVES”.               virginmoneygiving.com/fund/phoebesfamilyGBLearningChangesLives 

Salem senior school is one of the few senior schools that offers the orphans and slum young people a chance of further education. It is a substantial building but  is in desperate need of repairs and decoration. The school also requires a small laboratory and library to meet the educational boards requirements. If we cannot make these repairs and alterations we will not be able to run the school in future years. We have the opportunity to make this school one of the best in Kisumu , but right now we need some help. We have recently renewed the kitchen and built new toilets so we have made a great start will YOU help us finish this ?

Our Technical Academy offers some of the most disadvantaged people a chance to learn a skill that will eventually earn them a living. Currently we offer sewing and tailoring but we will offer carpentry in the New Year, We are renovating an old building, in a safe compound. Salem Ministries Trust own this building so there will be no annual rent, saving £2000 a year. We need funds to finish and equip this building. YOU could help by spreading the word to friends and family.

The third part of this campaign is learning materials for the nursery and junior schools. We need such basic things to help these children learn to love learning. Every penny you donate will go directly to our projects. The whole team in the UK are voluntary and do not claim expenses, our team members are truly dedicated to this cause.

Equipment is needed these bags and books were sent 5 years ago through Rotary Club and we need to replenish them

A chance for us to learn
