OUR NURSERY SCHOOL VISION COMES ALIVE AND TAKES SEED

When we visited our local Parish Priest to tell him about our vision to build an Orphanage in his parish 6 years ago, he promptly confirmed our own thoughts that we would need to build a school.

Starting an Orphanage was enough for us then and we left the school to God's perfect timing!

Four years ago, we opened our classroom here at KN to all the children playing on the streets because there is no Nursery in the village. We had up to 18 children come in to play, and to learn in English 123 and ABC.

It went very well, but we felt it was not right to have the orphanage and Nursery in the same place, however it revealed to us more clearly how big the need was in the village for a Nursery and Primary School.

Ludmila a few years ago shared our vision for a school with her friends in the Czech Republic and one family gave a donation which encouraged us to move forward to buy land that was for sale 3 minutes away by foot.

The land was bought and fenced by last April.

WAIT- Secure first.

When talking to our New Charity Trustees, WHTT, their concern was that if we started to fund-raise for a school we might not manage to survive as an Orphanage. Agreeing with their concern we were happy to wait until the funds for the Orphanage were more stable.

Our needs in the Orphanage are £2500 a month for 20 children and 3 mothers and 8 helpers. And the regular donations are less than half that amount now. Although one-off donations cover the shortfall, it is not a stable situation to start a school.
