Background to Neema School
Margaret and Geoffrey Trimby from Hadfield, while on holiday in Kenya in 2001, visited a poor village school: a hot, airless, dirty shed, with 35 children sitting on the earth floor, no electricity, water or sanitation. Their teacher had an old blackboard and bits of chalk. The Trimbys immediately bought exercise books, pencils and more chalk. They returned home intending to replace the shed with a proper school and set about fundraising.
Today, with over £60,000 raised and spent, the Neema School in
Kikambala has electricity, water, sanitation, five classrooms, five
teachers and 200 primary school children receiving free education. The
Trimbys raised most of the money from family and friends, establishing
the Neema School Kenya Trust charity
However, they continue to fundraise to pay the teachers, provide the
children with meals and uniforms, and maintain and expand the school.
A new classroom is under construction and Rotary Club of Buxton want to raise £2000 to equip it - with your help! Enter a team in our 50:50 CHARITY SWIMATHON and keep half of what you raise by sponsorsip for your cause - or make our cause yours so all you raise supports Neema School!
