Project information

The school bus project

Our school bus recently broke down and managed to stagger to Addis where it was found that the gear box has gone, there is no suspension, the brakes don't work and a million and one other small problems ! To get it roadworthy it needs a massive £ 425 pounds !

February 2015 - April 2015

  • Need


    The bus is essential as the Bole campus is not on a proper road - only a dusty track - so no public transport is able to get there.


    The money will enable the bus to get back on its feet and transport over 100 pupils to school

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To enable the school bus to be mended and roadworthy once again


    » Raise funds for essential maintenance

    What success will look like

    Seeing the school bus running its daily service once again

  • Impact


    The school bus is an essential part of the school. It is the only service that caters for pupils outside the town and some pupils have to walk 2 hours to get to the pick up point.


    As the garage has analyzed the bus in detail, we do not anticipate any other additional costs


    We will report through facebook and blog updates
