HELP US BUILD A SCHOOL FOR OUR SMALL GIRLS
Our farm is amazing! We have four beautiful therapeutic houses, we have a farm where we grow our own produce, we have greenhouses, we have therapeutic carers, we have almost everything…
The bit that is missing is a school for all our vulnerable young girls. Some of the girls come to us for weeks or months, others come for years. All of them come because of the horror of sexual abuse. Because we care for our children as they go through the court process, many of them are not able to go out to attend school during this scary time. Sometimes this process can last years.
Their lives are always in danger if they leave the safety of our farm. If the family of the perpetrator knew where their accuser (our girls) was, there is a very good chance they could be murdered, as their evidence will put these evil men away for life.
Be a part of their education
So, at the moment, they taught in the house they live in. Let me be clearer, at the moment they are taught in the bedrooms and in the kitchen of the house that they live in. During the day we push back the bunk beds and we pull out chairs and tables. It’s a little bit squashed. It’s a little bit disorganised. But our girls are learning as best they can.
Imagine if they had their own purpose-built classrooms with desks and chairs and blackboards and spaces to do indoor lessons and a playground for outdoor play. They would believe they were in heaven.💫
We have an approximate quote of $60k AUD but we are working with a local architect and builder to get a definite quote and plans.

Thank you to the wonderful team at Fresh Promotional Products Australia for printing our custom badges for our school!
They look fabulous and will be taking to Kenya in June to get the uniforms completed.
