The Big Build Kenya January 2017

January 2017

We are now thirteen months into African Adventures Foundation’s biggest ever fundraising drive and, already, we have raised nearly £42,000.00 for the new Walk Centre primary school through our Big Build Kenya campaign!

It’s been six months since Chichester College volunteers first broke ground on the new Walk Centre primary school project back in July 2016. Six months later, the ground floor classrooms have been constructed and Project Founders, Alex and Patricia Maina, have opened the first four primary education classrooms for Standard One through to Standard Four (the first four years of Kenyan primary education).

Up until this month, students graduating from The Walk Centre after Standard One were moved on to a local government school and The Walk Centre covered all the associated schooling fees. These fees included; uniforms, lunch, desks, stationery and examination fees, for over 200 children. With the construction of ten new classrooms, Alex and Patricia’s plan is to open one new primary school class per year and slowly move their current students through the successive year groups.
