Kenyan School/Orphanage Needs Your Help!

Some of the beautiful children of "Little Angels"
Whilst visiting a little village Orphanage & School in Mombasa, Kenya, East Africa, we were saddened to see the heart rending conditions these children had to live & learn in, and have made the decision to try and help these beautiful people to build a village school.
The land has been granted to them, but they do not have the funds to build a school.
Their current building is a one room tin shed with no facilities at all, for which they must pay rent using the meager funds they have.
This same shed houses at present 102 children, 3 teachers and a cook. Some of these children are orphaned; others only have 1 parent or are just poor, in general all are very needy.
They vary in age from kindergarten, preschool & through to Year 3.
Most of the children sit on the dirt floor, as desks and chairs are a luxury they cannot afford.
The estimate to build this school is around A$20,000-A$25,000 (Australian dollars).
We ask for your help in raising the funds to send to this village. If you can help in any way, large or small, every cent helps!
I know we have all seen various advertisements with requests for help for various needy causes, but I can assure you that every cent we raise will go directly to these children, no bureaucratic red tape fees or administration fees will be taken out!
If you can help in any way large or small, please visit our website at www.littleangels.cfsites.org for full details and more wonderful photos of this incredible little school.
Thanking you in advance...The Little Angels School of Hope!
