Urgent Fundraiser: Beds & Mattresses for Korando

Want to join us in supporting a good cause? We are raising money for the Korando Education Center to reopen the Primary School with new COVID-19 guidelines and your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate a little or a lot. Anything helps! Thank you for your support.

🧡 What is going on? 🧡

The ministry of education in Kenya provided strict guidelines for a school to be allowed to reopen and Korando urgently needs to meet these guidelines before end of October.

Also the number of children who are in need to stay at the Center (boarding) has grown to 75 and there is just not enough space for them all to stay, especially not when considering social distancing guidelines.

Thanks to generous support from other stakeholders, the construction of two new dormitories is already underway.

💛 What do we need help with? 💛

This fundraiser is to support the School with 20 new bunkbeds and 75 mattresses for the new dormitories.

💜 Budget 💜

Bunkbeds @ 94 Euro x20 = 1880 Euro
Mattresses @ 20 Euro x75 = 1500 Euro

💚 Donate 💚

Thank you for your support!✨💕✨
