Olives Rehabilitation Centre is a school funded entirely by voluntary donations based in a very underdeveloped shanty town about 5 km from Mombasa City Centre.
The shanty town is without clean water and suffers from a poor sewerage system and there is a high prevalence of HIV and AIDS in the area which has meant that many children have grown up with one parent on a very low income or no parents at all.
Olives provides a caring and nurturing environment where the children can not only learn, they are fed a nutritious meal in day and they get a chance to take part in sporting activities - all of which most of us take for granted.
Bubbles and Stars will focus on one or two areas where our funding will really make a difference.
Through the guidance and knowledge of Mishal Gudka who has strong links with the school and who has been a teacher at the school we will establish what equipment, materials take priority and help with the funding of these items
