The Charity is well supported by local schools.
St Andrew’s High CE High School for Boys has taken several groups of students to Kenya (Although visits had to stop in 2014 when the security situation prompted the UK Government to advise visitors not to go near Mombasa – this advice has since been lifted).
Georgian Gardens Primary School in Rustington has regularly raised funds as have Bishop Luffa School, Chichester, Broadwater Primary School, Thorney Island Primary School. Teachers from several of these schools have visited Unity School in Mombasa.
The Aga Khan Academy, Mombasa
Our support from the Aga Khan Academy is almost as old as the Charity. We first met staff and students from this international school when they came to Bombolulu with a social service project in 2004.
Since then they have come to Unity School to take Music and PE lessons. They have taken Unity pupils to the Academy to use computers and Food Tech rooms. They have played football against Unity on the local, uneven, no line makings football pitch. Then they took the Unity team to play on their all weather, artificial turf pitch.
More recently, Aga Khan students raised money to purchase a Jiko for the kitchen to reduce the amount of smoke and wasted heat. (The Charity then purchased another, to complete the job). They also planted grass in the Unity School compound to reduce the amount of sand blowing around – and it looks nice!
