Story

To help fund the installation of a borehole at Kilimo High School Kenya to provide a sustainable and safe water supply for the students and staff there.

There are 536 students aged between 13 and 18 years at Kilimo High School in the Njoro District of Kenya.

The majority of the students come from very modest homes most of which do not have either a power or water supply. Many of the students walk over 5 miles or more six days a week arriving at school at 6am in order to access the education that they treasure. None of the students are dropped off at school by car!!

Kilimo is a fully inclusive school recognised for their integration of students with physical challenges including wheelchair users.

After visiting Kilimo in February 2011 as part of an international schools link programme which my school, MiddIewich High Cheshire, was part of I was very impressed with the standard of education provided and with so few resources! It was an inspiring and life affirming experience which left a lasting impression on me as a teacher of 40 years service myself. To see so much achieved with so little by such a dedicated staff was truly amazing.

Since retiring from teaching in 2012 I have worked to raise funds towards the £14,000 required to pay for the cost of the borehole. So far £4,500 has been raised from the proceeds of a "Concert for Kenya" , a sponsored "Walk for Water" , sponsorship raised by the caretaker of Middlewich High School running the London Marathon and a donation from the S&C Electric Company. More fund raising events are being planned.

To have a clean and safe water supply on site would greatly enhance the quality of life for Kilimo's students and staff.

We here in the UK very much take for granted the fact that we have water on tap and flush toilets.This is something that those at Kilimo do not enjoy at he moment. However with the donations received from this appeal they may be able to do just that in the near future.

Their charismatic Headteacher , Nathan, retires next May 2019. It would be a wonderful and fitting legacy for such a dedicated and committed educationalist if we could present a cheque to him as he retires to cover the cost of sinking a borehole on site at Kilimo High School.

Please tell your family and friends about Kilimo High School !

Thankyou

    Good luck with the fundraising, it would be fantastic to be able to achieve this before Nathan retires, and what an amazing legacy that would be for all the students and staff at Kilimo High School.
