  • Container by Sea
    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.

  • Outdoor teaching
    Due to COVID our Dickson comprehensive school (used to be called Dickson academy) is not allowed to operate in the normal way. But we are allowed to teach the children in their respective villages and teach them children outdoors under the trees. Our teachers are changing location each day and teach the children from all classes who live in that area. This way we can keep an eye on our students and we encourage them to keep on studying.

  • Food relief
    After the first distribution on 30th April, we felt it was necessary to send our social worker and headteacher to visit every family we are helping to determine the needs (more than 40 have between 5-10 children). When we looked at their data, we decided to first give an equal ration to every family on our list. And then we would follow up two weeks later and give the very needy families a top-up ration.
  • Gratitude
    One of the new boys whom was taken from the streets, is sharing his gratitude! We are grateful to help boys like him, helping and leading them to a better future!
