- Dear Donors and sponsors,Good morning and how are you in the other side of the world!Pupils, parents , teachers and I are fine and doing well. We have been given a longer holiday due to the national census and statistics exercise taking place today till next week.The other thing to inform you is that we are going to have our pupils of age 8-10 in grade three being assessed by the government nationwide from 16-20 September. Some schools were denied the opportunity to have this assessment in their learning centres but for us we were lucky and so two small schools will have to bring their pupils to our learning centre for this exercise.It was alot of work from July with the governments officials to organize activities for school to market cleanup and trainings all through. Luckily we are done and God willing the officers will join us on 16-20 September.I want to thank you once more for being a supportive team from United Kingdom and Germany, making so many things a success in this learning institution and wish to sacrifice my time , energy and the little resources we have to meet our goal. There are many changes too brought by the government that are keeping all teachers on toes but I am also concerned and embracing the changes in pupils new curriculum so as to meet the government requirements.I am so happy for coming together with a common idea of development in the school to make the school be of the required standards. Am praying that God Almighty to bless you , give you all strength and good health.Thanks alot and have a nice weekend.

Hello our great friends! Hopefully you are all fine.
I take this opportunity to wish you, Carole and Mike, our school sponsors, all our donors and well wishers A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017. On behalf of the pupils, teachers and parents, I thank all of you for continued support to the Ebenezer School Project for a full year again. We have seen an improvement in pupils attendance this year and more pupils have enrolled. Some were from very poor families.
Thank you for your kindness and help in UK and your donations which we receive every month. I wish you all good luck as you continue supporting this project. Thanks in advance friends.
On Friday 11th November the children at Ebenezer Rescue School celebrated all their hard work. Some children graduated from the primary school and some younger children graduated from the kindergarten school to the primary school. They entertained their families with singing and dancing. There was also a scout parade, who were inspected by their teacher Margaret. It looks as if they had a great time. There was even a cake!
Recently the Kenyan government offered to install electricity into the school free of charge. We had to buy three wooden posts to bring the electric wire to the school. This cost us 63,000 ksh. (£480), which we sent to Margaret and James. Fortunately we were able to send this money as we had recently received a Gift Aid payment for the donations which had been made to the charity in the last year.
We were very pleased to hear that a visitor from Switzerland, Robert Muhlethaler, has been supporting the Ebenezer Rescue School for some time and he is very keen to raise more funds to help develop the school. We wish him luck with his fund raising
