The Raheli Trust
Since 2008, the retiring collection from the Blackheath Prep Carol Service has been donated to the Raheli Trust which supports the Archbishop Kahurananga School in Tanzania.
The School has recently sent us news of Agnes and Grace, whose education we have been supporting for a number of years. They have been predicted good grades in the National Examinations which have just taken place and, as a result, both girls will almost certainly be offered places at a government High School next June.
Thanks to the generosity of parents, staff and friends this year, we have been able to make a significant donation to the Raheli Trust which will allow Agnes and Grace to continue their formal education. We have recently received letters of thanks from the girls and it is clear that the support that they have received is very much appreciated.
We will also be able to contribute to the cost of breakfast and a mid-day meal for some day pupils at the school. This has helped students learn more effectively as well as allowing them sometimes to have their favourite rice rather than the usual staple of stiff maize porridge.
