BATUK logistics and supply manager, Warrant Officer Class 2 Cammie Macdougall and his wife Allison have raised Ksh 100,000 to support the Pentecostal Evangelic Fellowship of Africa (PEFA) School in Archers Post, close to the British Army Training Unit Kenya base.
Families stationed in Kenya have a long history of supporting local schools and communities through fundraising to support educational needs.
This school, which is run by the community and provides assistance to children that have been orphaned or met with other hardship, has welcomed the support over the last three years. So far, thanks to the support from Cammie and Allison, the school has been able to construct a perimeter fence, a sheltered dining area and an ablutions building.
The couple are now looking to raise a further Ksh 100k to fund the construction of a new dormitory to improve security for the children. Working towards this, Cammie has been sponsored to run the LEWA Full Marathon which will be followed by a further 26 miles in the Nairobi Marathon and other fundraising activities to reach their total, including the Oktoberfest Raffle.
