Rain Edge High School - A little About
This is a brand new High School, being created partly out of a need for further education for some at Sure24, the orphanage and also from a vision to provide a High School for the local community.When completed up to 1200 students will be catered for three quarters of which will be fee paying.
Construction is well under way with communal areas, teaching / discipleship quarters and several classrooms completed and in use. Water collection and limited solar power feature too, with plans for a water bore hole later in the year. Students planted crops during our stay for an autumn harvest .
There's a sports field with running track, Rugby Pitch, Basket and Volley ball courts, all intended for community use too.
Unlike Sure24 Orphanage some 15 mins drive away ,High School doesn't have access to mains electricity to power its classrooms ,Science Lab,Kitchen and rest of the facility.
In Kenya it's up to the first person wanting to be supplied to pay for all of the infrastructure; that is a transformer, poles, cabling and labour ,some £12,000 in this case.
After that anyone from the community within a mile radius can access electricity for a modest sum.
To Challenge 6,000 people to each gift £2 or whatever sum God might put on your heart.
We in the West don't have to even think about flicking on a light switch to see better or plugging in a charger to power up our phones, laptops or turning the oven on. We just can!
Imagine the gift your giving towards in providing Electricity, you'll be helping some of Kenyas ' next generation to achieve their dreams of becoming Lawyers, Doctors, Politicans , Pilots, Musicans or simply to give every day people something we can't do without -Electricity
Sure24 Orphanage -A little About
Founded over 14 years ago, with Sammy and Millie Nawali's Core Christian values this orphanage has gone from strength to strength. It succeeds in providing a safe loving environment for girls and boys of all ages to grow in. Most knew only of abandonment or conflict before coming here,surviving on the streets as best they could.
Here at Sure24 they are loved, valued, respected and encouraged to break free of past ways of life; they offered hope and future .
They now have their own water purification / bottling plant, bakery, garage, carpentry / metalwork workshops all helping to meet their needs and providing employment, while any surplus is made available to the local community.
