Liz Long, from Paignton, spoke to us on how she and others founded and continue to support Lisa’s school in Northern Kenya. The development of the school can be found on their website
http://www.lisasschool.orgwww.lisasschool.org with numerous pictures.
Liz first showed us excellent pictures of elephants, lions, leopards and other wildlife in Samburu National Park in Northern Kenya, before moving on to the local town of Archer’s Post. It is situated in very arid, dusty area where goat herding is a prime source of income.
Liz learnt that Government supported education starts at 6 years of age and there was a need for earlier schooling between 3 and 6 years.
She started fund raising with friends for such a school and they channelled the funds through Trevor who runs a local Game Reserve.
The pictures of the school with the happy young children in their uniforms and their parents in their bright robes and beads is a real beacon of hope in a desperately poor community.
Liz and friends have funded the building of the school and toilets and now fund the staff wages, the books and pencils, uniforms, food to nourish the pupils and a computer plus health care, that’s included two operations of a hernia and a brain tumour. Liz confessed to many sleepless nights worrying about what they had started and letting down the hopes of the children and their parents.
We made a small contribution to this inspiring project and I’m sure you too will be moved by following the above website link.
