One of our former UK nursery managers has recently moved to Kenya whilst her husband is serving there with the RAF. She approached us to ask whether we would consider supporting a local centre for children of Masai families, who have disabilities and need extra support.
She was amazed by what a difference the Kajiado Centre made to the lives of these children and decided to try and help. We are delighted to be working with Kajiado , both to raise funds to support their work, but also to allow the children in our nurseries to understand how different the lives of children in other parts of the world can be. We hope this will be the beginning of a long relationship and will allow us to follow the progress of individual children and further understanding between both cultures. Many of our nurseries will be organising fundraising events; The Old Station Nursery at Benson held a really successful ‘Crazy Clothes’ day on 22nd October and made a great start to our fundraising. We’ll be updating this page and our Facebook page with the various activities, so do join in if you can.
