Thank you Gail and Sara, Thank you Lancaster school (England) with love from Mtwapa Academy(Kenya).

Dear friends,

‘My name is Rahab,the director of Mtwapa Academy school here in Kenya. Before I go on I’d like to briefly speak about the school our school.Mtwapa Academy was established in the year 1992 and ever since has the school has been progressing on well with many of our students enrolled in very good secondary school and some have joined most of the national schools which are highly categorized schools and further proceeding to the various universities here in Kenya. Some of the kids have also been enrolled in very competitive colleges which offer high quality training and therefore bringing hope in terms of employment to our kids.

Currently the school has a total population of 250 kids under 16 members of the teaching staff with four supporting staff i.e a school security guard, cleaner and two school cooks.

Here below is the list and names of the teaching staff;-

Class……………………….Name of teacher.

1. Baby class………………madam Mary.

2. KG 1……………………..madam Joyce.

3. KG 2…………………….madam Rose.

4. KG 3…………………..madam Everlyline.

5. STD 1………………….madam Joyce Makena.

6. STD 2…………………madam Linet.

7. STD 3………………..madam Veronica.

8. STD 4…………………Mr.Lewa.

9. STD 5………………Mr.Were.

10. STD 6……………madam Mercyline,

11. STD 7…………….Mr.Ziro

12. STD 8…………….Mr.Baya

Other teaching staff are Mr.Mjomba(IRE),Mr.Joseph (upper class teacher),madam Frida and madam Rahab. The school head teacher is Mr.Baya assisted by madam Veronica and school senior teacher being madam Everlyline.

We have clubs in the school i.e Environment, debate, scout, journalism and Music. For the environment club they mainly deal with planting of flowers and making the school to look clean and beautiful. For the debate the normal hold weekly debates in the school where different motions are debated. Also with journalism they do weekly writing on school news.

Also the school do some yearly education trips outside Mtwapa  so as to expose the kids to nature and history of our country which is also beneficial to their education e,g last year our kids made a trip to the Tsavo national park where kids were exposed to seeing wild animals which most of them have been reading from their books.

I want to thank all of our friends in England and more special thanks goes to Gail and Sara of Mtomondoni sponsorship program whom through them sponsors and friends have too supported our school.

In relation to the above, I therefore today want to special welcome and send my lots of thanks to Lancaster school (England) who have financially supported our school through Gail and Sara. With this kind of support, the money will be helpful in sorting out the payment of our teachers’ salaries. Also some of the money will be used to buy 3 tables for the baby class,

Personally as the school director, I appreciate very much for the donation through Gail and Sara as it has boosted the school a lot. I therefore want to send my appreciations to the entire school i.e ,administration, kids and all the teachers of Lancaster school (England) and may God bless you.

 Generally the impact of all the school support ranging from rebuilding of the school, running water through the well digging, school library,computers,tables,chairs,kids sponsorship etc has been very positively taken by the local community with all the kids and their parents in the school are happy of. As a result the school has been attractive and enrolling at least every term new kids.

Finally I  say bye bye our friends, yours faithfully, Rahab  (school director).’
