Educate the Kids’ Kenyan choir, Singing Children of Africa, have returned from the UK following another successful tour, having not only made many new friends but also a large number of donated items.

Although the tour was shorter than usual, it still managed to raise £25,000 as well as many new sponsorships and donations.

Altogether, the children returned to Kenya with 29 cases full of goods including school uniforms, underwear and resources. Several contained gifts for the children and families in the village.

The children also returned from the uK with new pillows, clothes and shoes, which Grace was happy to begin sorting out.

Educate the Kids have a great team of strong women teachers working in the school who are wonderful role models for the children. If you or your business, school or organisation would like to sponsor a teacher for £150.00 per month, please contact the charity.
