Sasengi is an isolated school that I spent three weeks volunteering in whilst in Kenya. The schools is located within a nature reserve, and thus is cut off from support from the government. This support includes basic necessities like food and water More ...

I recently spent 3 months doing construction volunteer work in Kenya. Within this time I worked within various communities and schools, construction school buildings, houses and medical facilities. The disparity of living conditions between my comfortable home in Dural and these Kenyan villages really confronted me.

Upon returning home two weeks ago, I decided that I would attempt to continue to support the communities and schools I was working within. I have chosen to support Sasengi Primary School.

Sasengi Primary School is located within a wildlife reserve in the Tsavo West National Park in Kenya. It is approximately 40minutes from a main road, and a further 40minutes to the closest town, Voi. Voi, however, is little more than a bus stop town, as it lies on the intersection of roads that run between Nairobi/Mombassa/ Tanzania.

It is the government’s responsibility to provide food and water to the schools in Kenya, as many of the families with kids attending such schools have no means to do so. When I arrived at Sasengi Primary, no food or water had been delivered for 3 days, and it did not arrive for a further 2 days. Thus, most of the kids at this school had been without food or water for a week.

In addition to this, the government since 2003 has only begun construction of a single school building, despite attendance rising from 60 to over 400.

In order to combat these conditions I am asking for your help through generosity and donations. Money donated will go towards text books and building supplies, as education is the main means to advancement!
