Help Elvie and Levi raise funds for Little Kings Academy in Kenya!
YTA have recruited two friends to help us Build a School in Kenya 😊 Elvie the Elephant and Levi the Lion are going to help us raise funds to put towards a new school for Little Kings. They are both looking for somewhere warm to stay over the winter months so we hope you can help!
For just £15 you can have your very own Elvie or Levi along with a Certificate. Proceeds made will be donated to Younite Foundation specifically supporting Little Kings Academy.
How money raised will help Little Kings Academy.
This year we started supporting this wonderful project. Little Kings was founded by Lucy Mwangi in 2007 following the postelection violence where many families were displaced, and several children were found on the streets. Alongside Ann a volunteer teacher they have both provided a haven for 35 children offering them food and an education.
Sadly, in October the school were told that they had to close due to the safety of the building. As this land is rented and the owner does not want to sell, they are unable to build a new school on the current site. Short term YTA and our partner charity Younite Foundation are hoping to help them rent an alternative building however long -term this is not going to allow this school to be sustainable and thrive to their maximum potential.
So here begins the biggest fundraising campaign to date! In order to purchase their very own school we need to raise £40,000.
Proceeds from Elvie and Levi will be going towards this long-term goal of helping them buy their own building and land. Until they own their own school there is minimum work, we can do regarding building anything permanent.
