I am doing a 10 mile Tough Mudder in order to fundraise for the construction of classrooms and dormitories at Belgrove Primary School in Kajiado South, rural Kenya.
Belgrove Primary School in rural Lemongo was purpose built in 2005, through a joint NGO initiative, to provide primary
education for children living in extremely remote areas of Kajiado South. The school provides an excellent standard of
primary education and provides three meals a day for all children which they would not normally receive at home. The
problem here is that many of these children must still travel extremely long journeys of over 16km a day to attend,
across terrain that is both prone to flooding and also wildlife hazards. This is a major issue for the school, evidenced
by the fact that 67 children dropped out completely last year as a result of these unsustainable travel distances. In
order for this school to be able to fully support all the children living in remote areas, there is a need for accommodation.
