WHERE WILL YOUR MONEY GO?
We are raising money for a new school bus!
Over the years we have worked hard to keep the 20 year old school bus alive!
Sadly it got the point where we were spending lots of money every month on maintenance as it was breaking down regularly.
Then last year it got beyond repair and now sits unused in the school compound which lead to 60 primary aged children unable to attend school anymore because we couldn’t go and collect them and the walk to school would not be safe for them.
We are at full capacity for primary borders so cannot accommodate these children living inside Tumaini. All of our secondary aged children live at Our school - many are refugees or orphans and never leave the compound of Tumaini - so when the school bus died last year it also meant hundreds of children whose lives are spent inside a school 24 hours every day no longer could access sporting events, cultural trips, and much loved leadership programmes which limits their lives profoundly.
Kenya does not produce or manufacture buses and therefore it is an expensive purchase - one we cannot easily afford - we looked to purchase and export a used bus from the U.K. but there are laws in Kenya about how old a bus can be when imported which made it a dead end pursuit.
So here we are asking people to run and cycle for our kids so that they will be able to receive the education that we know without doubt is the remedy for the cycle of poverty generations of Kenyan children have experienced and suffered from and of which we intend to break by teaching them that they have worth and their lives are destined to be better than the generation before who were not able to learn to read or write because school was unavailable.
