Building for Their Future – The Rainbow Unit

In the townships of Kenya, children with special needs are invariably seen as a punishment for the parents and of no value in society.

The lucky ones get a very basic education in classes like this.

Working with a very forward thinking teaching staff from the Utange State Primary School of Mombasa, we will offer 180 children who have special needs, not just a basic education (Life Skills) but the opportunity to learn one of 6 trades (Tailoring, Catering, Carpentry, Welding, Craftwork and IT) and, therefore, a future.

             … and this is our plan for their Rainbow Unit   

The building work has started but we need another £4,500 for plumbing, electrics, plastering and decorating the upper floor.

An earlier project provided IT equipment for the whole school and we already have the funds to equip the staffroom, life skills, and tailoring classrooms and much of the carpentry class. In order to equip the remainder of the Rainbow Unit we desperately need the following:-

Catering – £6,300

Welding – £4,000

Carpentry – £3,700

Craftwork – £800

Below are just some of the children who, with your help, can look forward to a real future.

No matter how small, 100% of any money you feel able to donate, will go directly into funding for the unit.
