As part of our seventh birthday celebration we are sharing the story (so far) of our charity and its main project in Kenya, the Kookaburra Community School.
You will learn how your support is transforming the lives of extremely poor children since 2010.
We will add new episodes over the coming weeks and months, so come back for interviews with staff and students, stories from volunteers, and of course, loads of pictures and video of the wonderful children whose lives we are changing.
Here’s an introduction with an overview of our main projects. The definitive one minute guide to our work in Kenya.
Episode One tells the story of how and why we started. Our founder relates his experiences in 2008 as a volunteer at a school and orphanage project in Bamburi, Mombasa.
Episode Two explains how a Kenyan school came to be named after the Wiradjuli Aboriginal word for a bird native to Australia.
In the third installment of the Kookaburra Story we meet Christine, just one of our students whose family are unable to meet their basic daily needs.
In Episode Four we talk about our Feeding Program and the essential part it plays in keeping our students fit and healthy and focused on their education.
