"I have seen the utter joy that children and indeed adults get from learning to swim. I have helped my nieces and nephews, and older relatives in Kenya, to learn to swim over the last 4-5 years.

I will be responsible for how the money raised is spent. I can guarantee that every cent that is raised will go towards this project. All money raised will be spent in delivering this project. I will be on site from the beginning until the first kid goes for a swim.

We guarantee that all money spent will be accounted for on the go fund me page.

We have also asked a certified accountant to audit our books to ensure that all money spent is directly related to the project.

This project is the subject of my thesis for my civil engineering degree at Sydney University.

Neither myself, nor the committee will be paid anything from the money raised." ANDREW PEARSON (FRIENDS OF ROMBO).


UPDATE: 26 September, 2018

TO ALL OUR DONORS,

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT TO DATE, WE ARE GETTING CLOSER TO THE
CREATION OF A SWIMMING POOL FOR  A COMMUNITY IN NEED.  WE
MADE THE STRATEGIC DECISION THIS MONTH TO TERMINATE OUR RELATIONSHIP
WITH ROMBO SCHOOL AS THEY WERE NOT AS COMMITTED AS WE NEED THEM
TO BE. WE HAVE BEEN APPROACHED BY OTHER SCHOOLS WITH MORE
DETERMINATION AND COMMITMENT TO ENSURE THIS PROJECT FULFILS OUR
OBJECTIVE OF EMPOWERING SOME OF THE POOREST CHILDREN IN KENYA BY
LEARNING TO SWIM.

We will not commit to any new school until Andrew has met with school officials 
personally when he travels there in early December.  We will keep you updated
as we progress. In the mean time, Andrew is continuing to design the pool / football field
and continues to work with a structural engineer and an architect in Australia.
We are still engaged with registered engineers in Kenya who continue to advise and will
oversee all construction work in Kenya once it begins.

THANK YOU FOR your continuing support for this important initiative.
