CHILDREN at Xabia International College Primary were amazed to hear that the money they raised last term would build a whole new classroom for children living in the Kibera slum in Nairobi (Kenya).
The project is being organised by the Hope Restoration Centre.
XIC Music teacher, Abi Fletcher, who helps run the project, the money raised by XIC (over 600 euros) will provide the older children with their own classroom, helping them continue with their education.
Abi spent the Easter holiday overseeing the building work out in Kenya, which has already been started. Toys, and even school tops, were donated by XIC pupils and were very gratefully received by the children in Nairobi, along with a photo of the child who made the donation.
In return, XIC children will be given a photo of the Kenyan child who received their toy.
In a special assembly, Abi thanked everyone for their help and support, telling the children that they had made a real difference to the lives.
