At the beginning of this new year we were surprised. An active family that bakes oliebollen every year for a charity, choose this time to bake for Shoulder 2 Shoulder. An enormous amount of oliebollen and apple fritters were baked and sold. We received a beautiful amount of €2276.30. Dear bakers, thank you very much!

The charity run in the Protestant Firstwald Gymnasium school was a complete success. The receipt of donations (> 7000 euros) exceeded all expectations. The raised money can be used to finance a much-needed classroom at Dickson Comprehensive School. Many thanks to all runners and all donors.

A charity run for the Dickson Comprehensive School of Shoulder 2 Shoulder is took place in the Protestant Firstwaldgymnasium Kusterdingen (Germany). A total of 136 runners started, who convinced about 250 sponsors to support them for the run. An all-round successful event. Thank you to everyone who organized, helped and sponsored, who walked with us or just took part.

Confirmants of the Evangelic Church Gniebel / Rübgarten (Germany) designate the offering from their confirmation services to projects of Shoulder 2 Shoulder. Many thanks to all confirmed and all donors.

De Dickson School in Kenia heeft nieuwe stoelen, tafels, kasten en whiteboards nodig. Daarom is er een container onderweg naar Kenia met daarin mooi schoolmateriaal uit Nederland. Met het nieuwe materiaal kunnen we zorgen dat de kinderen op een fijne plek kunnen leren en dat de overheid de school zal blijven steunen. Bedankt voor uw steun om dit mogelijk te maken!

Yes! After 10 months the schools are finally open again!

During summer 2019 an enthusiastic group from The Netherlands travelled to Kenya. In preparation of the trip the group organised all kind of fund raising campaigns to contribute to aims of the foundation. From close by they have experienced the work of S2S and participated in the summer camp for the boys of OGBC among others.

Due to law changes regarding eduation, extension of the school in Port Reitz with extra class rooms became necessary. By initiative of a bunch of teenagers a mixed group committed in 2018 to reach out for this goal as team 'Jenga Kenya'. After a spring full of activities to raise the necessary funds, the group travelled to Mombassa in August 2018. Together with local builders they realized the extra class rooms. A blessing to both the community of Port Reitz as the Dutch travellers.
