UK based charities Vision Africa and The Boo Charity have posted pictures of students at Kibera Mpira Mtaani (KiMMta) Early Child Development (ECD) receiving their new school uniforms. The fabric was donated by The Boo Charity with the making of the uniforms labour funded by their parents.

The presentation was made by Vision Africa UK Board Secretary Chris Ross and CEO Deborah Kimathi.

KiMMta opened their doors to the first sixty pupils back in 2012 with the aim of preparing children for primary education and  giving young children in the community a strong foundation on which to build.

The school also gratefully received another donation yesterday, this time from Weetabix East Africa.
