Walking to Educate Kenyan Children

With others, my mother, Corinne Corvin, founded a school, Sunrise of Africa School Ltd, near Nairobi, Kenya, to help give children a bright future through education.  Corinne continues to work tireslessly, in a volunteer capacity, to help hundreds of children, many of whom would not be able to receive a good education without our offering them scholarships.

I am Corinne Corvin's daughter, who is a volunteer Board Member, who helps with marketing and fundraising for Sunrise of Africa School. I live in Queensland,  Australia. I was born and brought up in Kenya.

This fundraiser is for five young Kenyan children who are currently at the school and who we wish to give scholarships to next year.  Each scholarship costs just  US$600/year, which includes all costs, including tuition, books, travel, uniforms etc.

On 13th August 2017, a lovely friend of ours, Aprile Alexander, is going to be walking the City2Surf in Sydney, Australia, to help raise much needed funds for the school. City2Surf is a 14km course starting from the city and finishing at Bondi Beach.

Aprile is inspired by the children of Sunrise of Africa School in Kenya, who show such joy in attending school. She wishes to enable these beautiful children to  attend this loving place of education through fundraising for these scholarships. 

Aprile lives near the Nepean River, New South Wales, Australia. One of her favorite pastimes is walking along this beautiful waterway, and in the Blue Mountains. Last year she walked the last 112 km of the Camino de Santiago in Northern Spain.

 She is deeply grateful for donations of any size, every dollar of which will go directly to the school. 

All donations from Gofundme are deposited directly into the Sunrise of Africa School bank account in Melbourne and transferred regularly to Kenya to enable us to continue our good work there. 

Asante Sana (thank you very much in Swahili).
