    Story

    Sofia is travelling with other students from Westholme School in Blackburn to Rural Kenya for four weeks in July & August 2018 with Camps International.

    The humanitarian projects that Sofia will be helping with this summer will have a life changing impact on the local community. Projects such as;

    • Building a new school classroom to raise the educational standards for a deprived community in a rural district of Kenya;

    • Constructing vitally needed community housing to raise the living standards for some of the most impoverished families;

    • Healthcare & sanitation projects to help improve the health of the whole community through installing and improving local amenities;

    • Assist with wildlife conservation programmes at Camp Tsavo and/or Mwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary;

    We are most grateful for any, and all, contributions you can make towards Sofia's fundraising.

      Quick update from Sofia (she did do a video but the sound quality is terrible!) The day has finally arrived that she is heading out to Kenya and wanted to thank each & everyone of her supporters for making her trip possible. Thank you!

      Just like on Saturday in Blackpool the finish line is in sight. Sofia completed her 2nd 5k race in the heat and sun and got a new personal best time of 31 mins 44 seconds in the bargain. The final balance for the trip to Kenya is due one week today and we have a way to go. So the time is now to please help if you can to get Sofia out to Kenya so that she can use the skills she has gained to help others!
