Short Films from the 2017 Hendin Academy visit.

The film below was made during the first trip to the Hendin Academy in Feb 2017. The film is presented by Sophie Hendin the founder of the Kenyan school Fund. In the film you will see the children of the Academy at school, on a school trip and Sophie visiting the families’ homes. The film will allow you to go on an emotional journey that shows insight into the lives of the families that the Kenyan School Fund supports and how education has the ability to change lives when communities are working together.

The second film continues with Sophie visiting the families’ homes and discovering that some are living in unsafe and dangerous housing with inadequate bedding and storage. When returning from the visit the HAPSA programme was set up. (Hendin Academy Parents Support Programme) the aim of the project is to move the most vulnerable families into suitable safe housing. The film is a true representation of Kenyan families that live on a dollar a day.

Fun Day June 2016

A fun day was had by all at the Kirby Road Conservative club on Saturday 25th June 2016. A wonderful group of ladies representing eight different charities (St Elizabeth Hospice, Kenyan School Fund, Teapot Project, Cancer Research, Macmillan, Copleston FC Mental Health Charitable Trust and Suffolk Oxygen Centre) organised a day of fundraising which included a Fete, Princess and Superhero party and evening disco.
The fete had stalls to play traditional games on, cakes, crafts, face painting, BBQ and NR Exotics provided the unique experience of reptile and snake handling. The superhero party allowed children to dress up as their favourite superhero or princess; there was also a surprise visit from Superman and Elsa.
The aim of the day was to unite fundraisers from various charities and work together as a team to enhance community spirit and support charities that are helping others on a local, national and international level. We would all like to thank the generosity of local businesses who donated prizes and to all who attended the events throughout the day. We raised £2600 which will be shared equally between the charities.бизнес


Hendin Academy Feb 2016

The Hendin School is now an Academy.Безопасные SEO эксперименты

We have moved to new premises so that we can educate up to 100 children. The school has been painted and has new kitchen and toilet facilities.

Our focus is to provide an enriching curriculum that will enable the children of the school gain the skills to be self sufficient in future life. We also believe the children should be happy and safe at school and have the opportunity to be intuitive and active learners.

We would like to thank Samwel and Joseph’s dedication to the new school project, without them we wouldn’t be changing so many lives through education.

Kenyan School Fund Celebrates Ten Years, Nov 20th, 2015.

On this day ten years ago I was fortunate enough to visit the New Light Orphanage in Mombasa, Kenya. Where I met a wonderful man named Samwel Manda who has dedicated his life to helping Kenyan children. Since then we have successfully run the Hendin School in Mombasa since 2008, founded the Soma Leo Academy in Nyeria, set up food programmes for street children and supported humanitarian camps in times of displacement and become a registered charity. I would personally like to thank you for any support you have given the Kenyan School Fund, it has helped so many children gain the right to clean water, food and an education. ir-leasing.ruMountains Photo


Soma Leo Academy Opening.

We would like to celebrate the building and opening of the Soma Leo Academy during 2015., the school is in Nyiera near the shores of Lake Victoria. The Kenyan School Fund founded the project along with Samwel Manda and worked in partnership with Pound Gates to raise the funds necessary to build the school. Pound Gates now care for the daily running of the school and we will continue to support the academy during 2016 as we have in 2015.

Endurance Challenges July 2015

Samantha Jones was daredevil enough to conquer her fear of heights by flying in a Tiger Moth in aid of the Kenyan School Fund. The flight took place at Duxford in June and Sam held on with both hands and managed to complete the flight. Thank you Sam for being so fearless. The money raised will go towards the school food programmes.sports74.ruТраверсы


Maria Payne took on the phenomenal challenge of cycling from Lands End to John O Groats averaging 72 miles per day in aid of the Kenyan School fund. The challenge was completed in 14 days of stupendous cycling and we thank Maria for all her hard work. The sponsorship raised will help buy a gate at the Soma Leo Academy school.


School Trip to Haller Park, Aug 14.

The children of the Hendin school in Mombasa enjoyed an end of school educational trip to Haller Park. At the park they could see giraffes, zebra’s, elephants, tropical fish and walk around the nature trail. I managed to speak to the children through skype and they said how much they enjoyed the day out and having lunch with a fizzy drink ! We would like to thank all of the supporters who made donations at the last quiz night so that the children could go on the trip. For some of them this is the first time they have been in a mini bus or even left their village. The head of the school Samwel informed me that the day out has enriched their lives and they can’t wait to go on another next year.trevordiy.wordpress.comRA Grani
