News Update: Spring 2024

We visited Timboni School, Kenya in February 2024.

We had not visited the school since February 2020, immediately before the world shut down with Covid-19. Although we have received regular reports, nothing beats an in-person visit and we were not disappointed.

We have agreed a budget to support Timboni for 2024 and 2025 (teaching, feeding, supporting and learning) and we have 3 new standalone projects to fundraise for. We detail more on these later but if these headline projects are dear to your heart, please do consider supporting them:

ICT Project: 4 computers and a printer...............£700

Sewing Machines Project: 4 sewing machines...£750 !!!FULLY FUNDED!!! (See blog)

Covered Dining Hall Project: To sit 150 children in 2/3 sittings....£5,500

UK based fund raising has been hit hard by both Covid-19 and the cost of living crisis. Nevertheless, an important income stream for us is via Riviera.
