ACACIA UK Funds first project in Kenya.

ACACIA UK is delighted to be funding a breakthrough community outreach project in Thika, Kenya through Kenyan NGO, Macheo. The educational outreach project will focus on increasing the numbers of children attending school in the Thika region and decreasing the numbers of children dropping out of school. This will be the biggest outreach project in the area, with social workers covering 18 schools. This year the project plans to support over 1900 children, 430 parents, 280 teachers and 40 community leaders with 200 children who otherwise would not have been starting school. Often these children will attend school for the first time, thus transforming their opportunities in life.
