Volunteering-Mustard Seed Project 2017

Reshma Kinnon

My page:

In September 2017, I am going to Mombasa, Kenya to volunteer with the Mustard Seed Project for just under 3 months.

I chose this project because I like their vision and I wanted to get involved, not just by raising money but by going there to live, learn and support this community. I am really looking forward to going to Mombasa and working in the school (especially with the little ones!).

Most of the money raised will go towards purchasing books for the older children. To get into secondary school, children need high marks in Swahili. Buying the Swahili reading scheme books for the children will make a huge difference to their education and prospects. The Swahili reading scheme is very expensive and one set of group readers cost £20. Each of the 3 classes need at least 20 each (£1,200).

Also, money is needed to buy glasses for some of the children.  

Please can you help me raise money to enable these children to have a brighter future!

The Mustard Seed Project would really appreciate your support.

Thank you very much,
