Bricks and Books

In order to fund the building of The Turkana Teacher Resource Centre I came up with the idea of sponsoring each brick and book needed. This was a great success and raised the €45,000 required to complete the centre.

We made it!

Thanks to the tireless efforts of family and friends; with a final push we raised €3,500 at a céilí and €1,500 at a cake sale; and with a timely donation from CONCERN of €5,000, phase one of the "Anna Nanjala Education Centre" is now complete. You can read Nora's newspaper article on completing the project here.

Now we are seeking to extend the centre to provide even more, needed, facilities for the Turkana people of Kenya. Since we are funded by voluntary means, mainly through charitable donations of time and money.
We need your help once more.

If you want to help us to extend the centre to provide greater educational resources you can donate directly to the bank account or come along to our next fundraising initiative.
