The Raheli Trust
Since 2008, the retiring collection at the Prep Carol Service has been donated to the Raheli Trust which supports the 460 pupil Kigoma High School in Tanzania. St Michael’s Church, where the Carol Service is held, has a long association with communities in this area which is in one of the poorest parts of Africa.
In 2015, Blackheath Prep offered to sponsor Agnes and Grace, two girls from Kigoma, through high school. For both girls, this was a life-changing opportunity. They are now entering their fourth and final year at the school. They have been working very hard indeed, have achieved excellent results and will be taking their Tanzanian National Exams at the end of 2019. Parents and friends attending this year’s Carol Service once again gave generously and their contributions will go directly toward funding the final year of school for Agnes and Grace.
