With the new year upon us, we're getting very excited about what we have in store both on the ground in Kenya and for our fundraising activities closer to home over the year ahead.

You can read more about what we have planned below, as well as catch up on some of our major highlights from 2015.

We really hope that you will join us in some way this year and help us to continue delivering our projects and programmes to the 2,500 disadvantaged children across our seven partner schools.

Wishing you a very happy and healthy new year.
A look back at 2015...
...and at our plans for the year ahead.
