Advancement of Education

Over the year the Friendship Link has helped the villagers replace their mud buildings with  longer lasting brick or concrete classrooms and teachers houses.

One of these classrooms displays a dedication plaque to the late Eric Deal, one of our founder members.

Primary education is free but we have sponsored a number of children to secondary  school and beyond and have sponsored the village nurse on a 5 year doctors course which she has just successfully completed.

The link works both ways and by regular involvement with the local schools in Kenilworth we are helping our own children understand more about their brothers and sisters in Africa.
