West House Sponsor Melvin Auma

A huge thanks to Heli Dixon and everyone in West House at Cranleigh School who raised £1500 through their sponsored walk and cake baking.

The girls of West House have very generously decided to donate the money to help provide Melvin Auma, from Ronda Primary School with the opportunity to complete her education by sponsoring her through to 2014.  Melvin comes from the urban slum area outside the school and lives with her 2 sisters and mother and father in a single roomed, mud house.  She is an amazingly positive girl who loves athletics and wants to be a teacher when she is older.

Over and above this, the funds raised were also put towards the construction of a new School Hall at Ronda which will benefit all the young children at the school.

 

 

East House – Cranleigh School raise £4,000 in a day for Ronda

Amazingly the boys, girls and teachers of East House, Cranleigh School, managed to raise over £4000.  All the money helped fund the construction of a much-needed new classroom at Ronda Primary where over 1,000 children go in search of a better future on the edge of one of Kenya’s largest slums.

The classroom was proudly opened by Mike (ex-master at Cranleigh and EnKI Trustee) in March 2011.
