Obviously a wondrously effective organisation. Small, but exquisite in every detail”

In recognition of the dedication and commitment of teachers at the ABATO School in Mpigi District in providing a quality education for the vulnerable children at this school, we have over the summer supported ABATO to construct 5 teacher’s houses within the grounds of the school. Each house has a bedroom and a living space, with cooking taking place in an outside communal kitchen area.

It is with great excitement that we bring you the news of the expansion of our school feeding programme into our long-term partner school Mara Riante in Kenya’s Masai Mara. This simple intervention is making successful in-roads into tackling one of the root causes of both poverty and poaching – lack of access to education.
As a result of this Breakfast Club enrollment numbers have increased with more Maasai parents putting their children into school. Attendance levels have also soared with children able to participate in lessons rather than search for the day’s food.

High Five Club has partnered with ABATO Uganda to supply 40 x 3-seater desks and benches for the community-run Galilee School. Previously all 120 learners were taught sat on the ground. This small intervention has greatly improved the learning environment at this rural school.

We have joined hands with Roffey Homes to contribute towards the construction of a new classroom and teachers’ houses at a rural Maasai School in the Masai Mara, Kenya. We have worked with this community school for several years and it is now one of the best in the area. The Maasai themselves contributed 50% towards this development and the High Five Club 50% in line with our ‘hand up, not ‘hand out’ ethos. To read more click here.
