FIRST 4 CLASSROOMS
KYGN UK’s first priority was to raise funds to enable KYGN to move into this purpose built school.
The new school building opened in April 2014 with four classrooms for each of Primary 1, 2, 3 and 4.
Opening the new school was the culmination of a fund raising campaign over several years with individual donors, corporates and charitable organisations from around the World giving generously to give the KYGN team first rate facilities they need and deserve.
KYGN UK has helped KYGN to achieve so much over the last few years and none of this would have been possible without the help of our generous supporters and volunteers.
Here's some of the highlights:
Working with KYGN and again with international support including the many volunteers who have worked for KYGN, we were able to open the safe house in January 2016.
It is a sad reality that the safe house is needed to give immediate safe shelter to vulnerable children, many of who are referred to KYGN by the Tanzanian children’s authorities or village chairmen who value highly KYGN’s work. The safe house can accommodate up to thirty children and the building also has accommodation for the pre-primary classes.
We want the best for the KYGN children and this purpose built library is further testimony to this. Through the generosity and hard work Surbiton High School the new library opened in the Summer of 2016.
Having raised all the funds to build the library, a team of girls from Surbiton visited KYGN in the summer of 2016 to set up the library and fill the shelves with much needed books.
THE ROAD TO SUSTAIN-ABILITY
KYGN's aim is to be a fully self-sustainable organisation providing education and welfare services for the children of Mabogini.
We already have a tilapia fish farm, we are selling maize and onions from land donated to the school and there is also a chicken farm.
This is in addition to the Big Horn Tours, which has been running for some years now and will organise safaris and guided climbs to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro and a curio shop which sells a range of beautiful, locally sourced souvenirs.
KYGN would never have achieved everything it has without the generosity and support of people and organisations across the globe.
