We are proud to have linked over 1,000 Scottish and Kenyan school children as part of our school twinning programme ‘Connecting Children, Creating Chances’ which aims to provide the children with a better understanding and level of appreciation for what life is like for a child in the country of their partner school.
As a partner, your class would support the Pavilion Village Children’s Home which houses 39 children who have been abandoned or lost their parents through things like HIV, enabling these Kenyan children to have the same chance in life that our children at home in the UK can often take for granted.
We also hope that it will lay the foundations of potential long term friendships between the children.
The programme sees:
- Your school/class linked as a pen pal with one and two of our GEF kids in from Pavilion Village who they write back and fore throughout the year.
- Each school prepares letters on areas such as culture, water, animals, healthcare, food, language, home, sports, hobbies, homework, water, cooking, playground and family.
Whilst part of our work is to create immediate opportunities for disadvantaged children through the payment of school fees, we believe that our schools programme will help to further create a sustainable and long term benefit to large numbers of children in Kenya and Scotland.
