Build 2 Classrooms for Heartspring School (Kenya)

In early 2014 I visited Heartspring School in Rural Kenya. OrphFund, one of my all-time favourite organisations, currently support 80 students without parents at this school. They do this by funding school fees, accommodation, medical care, food & clothing for these young people at a residential village at the school. I spent several days with these students, hearing their stories about their own lives,  joining in on classes and eating meals with them.  That's where I met Martha, photographed above. She's smart, a little shy, yet determined, kind, warm and funny. Her favourite thing is to sing. Martha and these young people are close to my heart, as is OrphFund. 

In January 2019, two school classrooms at Heartspring collapsed. This has resulted in a situation where classrooms are currently being shared by different year levels and are now overcrowded. The learning of these young people is being compromised. I am supporting OrphFund to raise the $5000 needed to rebuild these 2 rooms so that these students can have the space they need to learn in.  OrphFund will provide the full 100% of all funds raised to this rebuild project. 

Please help me to raise the $5000 we need to rebuild these classrooms!

Many many thanks
