We raised £780.50 for new textbooks for the ‘The Bright Hope Education Centre’ in Kibera, Kenya!
We well and truly surpassed our target – thank you!
Each year group considered the obstacles to learning for the children in Africa and across the world,
e.g. poverty and being unable to pay school fees, poor health and nutrition, distance to travel to school, inadequate teaching materials, special educational needs, etc. They then completed their own obstacle events/races to raise money for this charity.
Thank you to Anne Wynne from the Hope4Kibera Team who came to support us and give us greater insights into the Kibera slum and the Bright Hope Education Centre School, and thank you to everyone who donated and helped us to raise money for this fantastic cause!
Our previous work:
In February 2021 we held a 4Challenge Day and you raised enough for 45 food boxes to be given to families in Kibera. Each box feeds a family for a whole week!
4Challenge was the focus of all learning for the day on 11th February and each child took part in some form of 4Challenge activity. The children have been inspired by this project and have come up with their own ideas for how we can fundraise. Ideas include dance-athons, kindness activities, and a 4-part marathon art session.
Chris Omondi and Peter Abungu sent their greetings to you all and are so grateful for your partnership in their work. They watched the interview on this page between Mrs Jones and Linda online and are so encouraged by your initiative. All the team in Kibera, and we at Hope4Kibera, wish you every blessing, success and, most importantly, fun in your special day.
NEW! Below is a special thank you message from the girls at the Bright Hope Education Centre.
They address their message to 'Dr Charlie and Withycombe Raleigh Primary School!'

Year 2 coloured Kenyan flags and had a go at some African-style drumming!

Can you find Kibera on a map?
With about 800,000 people living in Kibera, you can see that the slums cover a really big area.
How does this compare to the population of Exmouth? Can you find out?
