The completion of the project last month was marked by a ceremony during which the British Army Training Unit Kenya (BATUK) handed over 50 new desks that had been built from scratch by their own carpenters.

Major Hulme, the new BATUK Community Engagement Team lead, said: “This is the first project that I have been involved in and it’s fantastic to see what can be achieved with a combined effort from Battle Groups and the BATUK team.

“It is extremely rewarding to see the positive impact this work has had on the children whose gratitude is clear from the smiles on their faces,” he added.
