7 years ago while Driving on the Tsavo – Kilimanjaro Highway , we couldn’t help noticing some children sitting under a tree with an adult standing and writing stuff on a board attached to the tree. We then decided to stop and see what was actually going on. To our surprise it was actually a school for the needy village kids who couldn’t afford to go to a proper school. Brigit, the teacher was only a volunteer at the time and it was her project to keep the kids educated. She was from the same village and had just finished her teaching diploma. We then took it upon us to help Brigit and the kids to better facilities and soon after that we were already at work. Today,with a total of 65 kids aged from 5-9yrs, Bright star academy has 3 classrooms, a clean toilet, a small kitchen, 2 other teachers and a little playground.
All this development has been generated by a percentage from our profit as a company. We also accept donations in terms of building materials, school stationery and or food.
