No one can learn when the stomach is empty. Our school is offering two meals for the children every day.
In addition to regular donors we also have other sponsors.
Vettre primary school and Hovedgården junior secondary school has appointed the Oasis of Hope their sponsor school and contributes with considerable amount each year.
Oasis of Hope is the developing project of the Heggedal congregation, and we receive donations from them.
Our school is located at Mbita in western Kenya. Mbita is a small town by Lake Victoria.
Many people live from fishing and local trade. The place has still a lot of poverty. Many children are orphans due to HIV/Aids. This area is one of the most congested HIV/Aids areas in Kenya. Many children are leaving school in their search for food or work. Some of these children ends up in the streets with no hope for the future.
In January 2023 we finally managed to open our new building for our pupils.
After three years of construction work we are happy to reopen our school.
With still some remaining work, we can welcome our pupils back to their own school.
We are also grateful for a donation we received from Y's Men*s Club International through their Time Of Fast program.This amount was covering doors and windows in our new building. We
thank Y's Men's Club and YMCA in Kenya for good cooperation. The donation helped us a major step forward.
Moss Rotary has, in cooperation with Rotary International, supported us with a considerable amount earmarked for school books and desks. We are grateful for this support.
