The monthly meeting was held on Monday 25th July and the speaker was the lovely Margaret Trimby who, along with her husband, founded The Neema School ( Kenya ) Trust ten years ago. Neema School Kenya Trust website
This charity was set up to raise money to build a school with water ,electricity and sanitation for poor and orphaned children in Kikambala. They also collect books, clothing , shoes and toiletries to send out to the families.
The first 3 classrooms of the school building are now built, window frames and doors are now made, fitted and varnished and the classroom walls have been brightly painted. A well has been dug to serve the villagers as well as supply the water for the toilet block. The toilet block has been furnished with the toilets , showers and washbasins.
The first class opened 3/01/2012 and they now have 120 pupils who would not have received an education without the school.
