My story

[p][i]"May I every day in every way, strive to leave the world slightly better than when I entered it" (CK Seet, my grandfather, quoting Father Sumangalo, Malacca 1961)[/i][/p][p]Eve Coles, founder of grassroots charity Club Rafiki has been doing just that. Working alongside Rose Muhoro, Headteacher of the [b]Nanyuki Prep School Kenya[/b], Club Rafiki works to ensure orphans and other disadvantaged children are offered the opportunity of a future.[/p][p]Simply, [b]£3.50[/b] educates a child for one week, [b]£14[/b] educates a child for one month, [b]£3.00[/b] feeds a child for one week, [b]£8[/b] puts a pair of shoes on a child's feet, [b]£12[/b] buys a school uniform for a child, [b]£2[/b] can buy exercise books,[b] £3[/b] can buy a school text book. Not only that but becoming a pen-pal to learn more about the differences in culture is encouraged; and Eve regularly brings a group of volunteers to Kenya to help with the hands-on building and contribute to the education and experiences of the children.[/p][p]Our choice of Club Rafiki is because my mother who passed away in February 2018 was a teacher supporting special education. She wrote in her dissertation [i]" All children have basic needs which must be reasonably met if they are to grow up into mature adults...they need experiences and relationships that help to build inside them a feeling that they are lovable and valued...They need to feel significant and worthwhile...that their worth is recognised."[/i] Neither she, nor my dad aspired to "leave a legacy", but the opportunities that they have given me which I - with the support of Dave (and, hopefully, you!) - can start to repay means we will be able to gift a future.[/p]

Good luck with the training as I think this is harder and requires more dedication than the event itself.
