  • Need


    The children of Enkerende are in need of a new school and better learning environment. This project will enable us to begin to raise money for the second phase of the project, and create a fully working and usable school at the centre of the community.


    The success of this project will directly effect how quickly we can build a school for the children of Enkerende village.
    This project and the funds we have previously raised will enable us to start building our school in the Maasai Mara, once we have started we will update our donors on our progress.
    The school building will provide a sustainable learning environment for the local community and a stable income for the teachers working there.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To raise £5,000.


    » Cycle unaided 2,500km from Vancouver to Los Angeles.

    What success will look like

    Success of this aim will be a new school and greatly improved educational facilities for the children of Enkerende.

  • Impact


    The project will significantly increase the opportunities of the Enkerende children and the wider community. Having access to a secure, stable and sustainable school building, their academic potential could be fulfilled and they could have reliable access to a good standard of facilities and teaching.


    The short time frame involved means that it will be hard to reach our target. We will try our hardest to reach our goal and assess progress throughout in order to improve our chances of meeting our target amount.
