Steve Mosey and his wife Eileen have built a schoolroom in Kenya with clean water collection facilities.
Mosey and his wife Eileen attended the meeting of the Rotary Club of Brigg on
Thursday 3rd November 2016. Steve was awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship by PDG
Mohammad Ali to recognise his contribution to enhance the education of children
in a rural area of Kenya and President Ambrose Fowler presented him with his
a holiday in Kenya, Steve and his family recognised the need for a school house
and clean water supply for the Ololchura Primary School in Kenya. Children were
being taught lessons under a tree and they had to drink dirty water from a
local stream. Seeing the poor conditions, Steve and his family decided to
finance the building of a school house and a rain water harvesting system. The
project was totally paid for by Steve from his personal funds. This project was
completed in 2010.
the construction of the first classroom, a church group from Birmingham and the
local authority in Kenya have added 2 further buildings to the school. The
Rotary Club of Brigg took the opportunity to work with Steve and provide
furniture for the school. This consisted of desks for pupils, chairs and desks
for teachers and cupboards for the classrooms.
project, costing £1,550, was half funded by the Rotary Club of Brigg and the
other half came from the matching District Grant from the Rotary Foundation
(Rotary's own charity).
education and welfare of the school children has been greatly enhanced by these projects.
