Swanland School Update

These two photos capture the progression from early school years to High School perfectly. The core aims of our charity are to provide care and education to the very poorest of children in deprived areas, who would not otherwise be able to access schools. The education we provide them allows a real hope for the future and hundreds have gone on to High School, and Higher Education across Kenya.

Swanland School Nairobi continues to be a beacon of hope in the deprived neighbourhood of N’gando. The school has continued with its vision of serving the poorest in this local community and delivering a rounded curriculum to these children. Many come from broken homes with very challenging living conditions. They are so grateful for the opportunity that Swanland School brings, and it is a joy to see so many of them progress and achieve great things through their hard work and commitment! This is one of many pupils who has gone on to be successful at High Schools and beyond.

 

Esther’s School Update

A key part of Esther’s school is the early years education and pre-school support. Esther also runs a project to support women in the community manging HIV/AIDS. Having access to good, quality nursery and pre-school provision allows these women to work and support themselves knowing their children are also getting the start in life.

There are over 450 children and students in Esther’s school and it continues to go from strength to strength, thanks mainly to the dynamic leadership of Esther and her husband Daniel. Last year many of you gave generously to their building project for a new kitchen at the pre-school. This photo was taken inside their impressive ‘Ferriby Block’, also  built with the support of many of you.

 

Celebration Events

This picture captures the sense of achievement and celebration that always accompanies an end of year awards event! We often take education for granted here in the UK, but these events always demonstrate how proud and appreciative the students are for the opportunity they have and the achievements they have made.

We look forward to being able to visit again next year and witness first hand the colour, hope and vibrancy that these events show! Thank you to those that give generously to make this happen. Please be re-assured that your support is being effectively used to deliver our core aims of care, education and hope.
