Thank you to everyone who came to our school fundraiser on the 15 March. The pub quiz was a huge success and we raised £739 pound in total. We are so thankful and humbled by the efforts and contributions shown towards Idimayii Maasai School. With this money we plan on buying the 40+ children who turn up to school everyday, school books and exercise books. For 3 books - English, Maths and Swahili it costs £10. With the remainder of the money we plan on using it towards the building of a classroom, which we hope to achieve later this year.
The school was so happy to have Caroline our volunteer teach English during the month of March. Both the teachers and children were learning English and everyone was happy. Caroline stayed with Helena the maths teacher at her boma and she had a wonderful time.
Volunteer Maasai is arranging a number of dates throughout the year to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, so get in touch with us for more information.
Claire is travelling to Tanzania on 22 March and would like to thank everyone who has donated towards the school. As always the school needs volunteers and people who are willing to help, if you think you can help get in touch with us we would love to hear from you.
