Head teacher, Jacob Benedict Lekaaso, wants to challenge Friends with this message: “You Quakers are known for your excellent schools. Why have you neglected Loltulelei?”
With 1,900 students, Loltulelei Friends School is the largest school in the desert region of Samburu, Kenya. This four-room school was built of mud and wattle in the mid-1980s. Such a building is not meant to last more than a few years, yet Friends are still using it today.
This year’s Summer Mission Project is to raise $20,000 to replace at least two of the four mud and wattle classrooms with more durable, safe and hygienic cement block classrooms. As you help us raise “Cash for Classrooms” this summer, don’t forget to share your stories with us. Thank you for investing in these kids and their community!
