The Students and Parents of the Kenya 2012 group are going from strength to strength in their fundraising efforts to support a group of Devizes School Students in going to Kenya for one Month next Summer (2012). Whilst in Kenya the Students will be working in a Village and will make a lasting contribution to improving facilities and the economic resilience of that Community. The group also hope to go on an early morning Safari and to climb Mount Kenya. So far in excess of 8,000 has been raised to support the funding of this exciting project all monies raised will part fund the costs incurred by the group whilst a further part of the funds will be invested directly into the host Village in Kenya.
