Early in 2010 the trustees of the Aquinoe Learning Centre Charitable Trust, along with members of other charities, were invited to attend a meeting with representatives from the SAFE (Southern African Fund for Education) committees of the various colleges at Cambridge University.
Jean and husband Dave made the trip to Cambridge, where they set up an information stall and spoke about the charity for a few minutes, giving details of the school in Kitale, the prevailing conditions, how the charity is helping and the kind of projects which require funding.
In July and August, ALC was lucky enough to receive:
– £688.50 to fund physiotherapy equipment from St John’s College;
– £668.50 for furnishing the new dormitory for the youngest pupils from Trinity Hall.
The trustees have now submitted another application for funds to build washrooms adjoining the boys’ dormitory.
