Fundraising for Classrooms for Kenya

Classrooms for Kenya is a charity that was set up in 2006 by teachers and students at The Weald School in Billingshurst, West Sussex . Schools in Kenya are predominantly overcrowded and children are taught in mud huts that collapse every few years. These schools cannot afford to replace these buildings without outside help. Our aim is simply to provide permanent, safe classrooms for Kenyan children. Just £5,000 will convert a dangerous mud-hut to a permanent, brick-built classroom for the benefit of Kenyan children. Since 2006 we have been able to send our Sixth Form students to help build over 70 new classrooms for over 20 different schools in Kenya. We are looking to raise the funds to rebuild as many schools as possible in western Kenya but we will need all the help we can get. This area of Kenya is particularly poor and does not receive the sort of publicity or funding that Nairobi or other cities do. The only way schools can provide safe facilities for their children is with our help. Furthermore, these classrooms will not only be used for basic education but will also be used for teaching about AIDS awareness, equal opportunities for women and other issues that affect the community.
