My daughter adores Steph Julian who was her kindergarten teacher.
In 2012 Steph went on a volunteer teaching programme at the original Kyeeda school in Nairobi, Kenya. The school was on the brink of closing down – the land was expensive to rent, the school had no government funding and many of the students were orphans and unable to pay any fees.
Steph came back to Hong Kong and spent the next 6 years fundraising - land was purchased and a new school built.
There are currently 250 kids in the school, girls and boys aged between 3 – 16 years old.
Once the school was up and running, fundraising lost its momentum and the Kyeeda school is now struggling to keep open – they desperately need funds to pay the teachers and for the ongoing maintenance of the school.
Steph’s work with the Kyeeda kids has really struck a chord with my two daughters. They are very eager to help raise some money for the kids of Kyeeda and I am helping them to organise a Book and Cake Sale.
For anyone who cannot come but would like to make a small donation, that would be really appreciated.
All small donations together add up. Let's keep these kids in school - an education could really help change their lives.
