some of the kids at school this morning:)

Hello everyone, my name is Stephanie Knight.

Before I start, i would like to thank you for your interest and for taking the time to read my story. This is a first for me as I have never thought of fundraising before but a guest that was currently staying at Kanyemba lodge brought it to my attention and suggested it and I thought that is was a great idea..

I have decided to run the Victoria Falls marathon on the 28th June to raise funds for a project that is very close to my heart.  The Makanya Nursery School  has been in operation for approximately 3 years now, and since its’ start up, it has grown from a handful of students learning under a tree in the local village, to having a formal open classroom and toilet facilities accommodating 30 students. This is based at Kanyemba Lodge, Lower Zambezi, Zambia.  Over these past few years, we have come to acknowledge that education is the KEY to providing the children of the Lower Zambezi with the resources they need to fight poverty and create opportunities for their future, and with this in mind, the Nursery School was started to provide the early childhood education these children need to start their journey.

A brick classroom is currently under construction but funds are needed to complete this project and to improve the toilet facilities for the students and their teachers, in the hopes of being able to expand and accommodate more children in class and additional teachers.

BUT, in order for this to happen, we – the children, teachers and myself need your help.. You will not only be investing finances into a building but you will be investing into these childrens lives and aiding  the opportunity for the children to receive an education and possible opportunities for their futures. For this, I can ganrantee you that the children are and will be forever grateful.
