We care about children in Kenyan slums to give them an education and life chances

Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit the ACEF Green Toilets Project fundraising page.

The aim of the Green Toilets Project is to build a fantastic new toilet facility for 800 school children (including over 100 orphans) who attend and live at the Brainhouse Academy, a school situated in one of the world's largest slums (Mathare North) in Nairobi, Kenya.

As well as replacing the existing toilets with newer, cleaner toilet facilities which are equipped with hand washing facilities and lighting, these 'green' toilets will also feature an energy recovery system which will produce biogas: a clean and renewable gas which can be safely used for cooking and lighting the school.

This project will deliver multiple benefits including improved sanitation and treatment of toilet wastes to protect the local environment and reduce the risk of children catching deadly diseases, while producing a biogas which will be used in the school's kitchen to replace the wood and charcoal fires, freeing up vital funds which could be spent on food, clothing, books and teaching equipment for the children.

The Green Toilets will give the children the toilet facilities that all children deserve, and it will act as a beacon of sustainable technology within the slum which could be replicated to improve the lives of thousands. 

This project will not be possible without your donations, and all donations will be gratefully received. Please leave your name in the comments section so that we can arrange a personal thank you for you from the children at the school.

For individuals, groups and companies who would like to 'Sponsor a Cubicle' and have your name or company logo painted on to one of the cubicle doors, we are selling each cubicle for £1,500 each. There will be 26 cubicles in total: 16 for the girls (including 2 larger units with their own private washing facilities) and 10 cubicles for the boys, who will also get 2 urinals. If you are interested in Sponsoring a Cubicle, please leave sufficient details in the comments section, or email us using the link below to discuss this further.

And finally, if you would like to learn more about ACEF, please visit the website: www.ACEF.uk.com

Thank you so much for your support.
