Kamuthatha School in Kenya
Kamuthatha School is a boarding primary school in the hilly and green Embu province. The children have to work very hard, and must wash their own clothes and bedding. They study similar subjects to Moreton pupils, but also take exams in Swahili, which is their third language! All their other lessons are taken in English, which is their second lesson. In Kenyan schools, speaking the children’s tribal languages is banned and, because the children travel to school from tribes based all over the country, it would be impossible for them to communicate in their mother tongue!
In Nairobi in Kenya there is a small school in a village called Kayole. We donate uniform to them which is still in good condition but our children have grown out of it. The children feel very lucky to have the opportunity to go to school and are very proud of their new uniforms. The school is now known as the Good Samaritan Moreton School
